It arrived too late for the last issue, but I wanted to publish this image sent by Bob Merchant of the "Corey's Ointment" counterstamp discussed last week. Thanks! The countermark is on an 1858-O Seated Liberty Half Dollar.

The quoted article included the phrase " the line of every trans-Atlantic railway".
