Denomination half crown
Description The seller told me that this coin was received in change by her father in Bray, Co. Wicklow sometime in 1956. He well remembers it as it was the first political counterstamp he'd ever seen. He saved it for that very reason. The style of the stamp and the fact that it was applied to a Half Crown suggests this and the previous coin may have been struck by the same person. The two dates, 1940 and 1941, are very close as well. It's also interesting that I acquired them five years apart from separate sources. A coin reunion, perhaps? Purchased from Jacquelin Devine / Bothwell, S. Lanarkshire, Scotland. (Ot. 10, 2017) ($6).
