Study collection of 26 El Salvador 2R (two), 1R (23) and 1/2R (one), unofficial and private counterstamps (ca. 1868) on various Spanish colonial coins (mostly cobs), ex-Richard Stuart. 76.24 grams total. These appear to be low-weight coins that were not appropriate for official counterstamping and therefore received local marks that were enough to make them circulate further. Some of the marks are quite deceiving while others are comical. Generally About Fine on average, mostly toned, less than half with holes. All but five of the hosts are cobs (from Mexico, Lima, Potosi and Guatemala) three of the remaining five being busts (the two 2R), one a pillar and one a British sixpence. Some are probably rare, great lot for further study in any case. Pedigreed to the Richard Stuart collection.
