Study group of nineteen Guatemala copper 1c, 1871 and 1881, with different countermarks to convert them to hacienda tokens. KM-196 and 202. The Guatemalan "un centavo de peso" (as opposed to the later "un centavo de quetzal") was struck in just two years--1871 and 1881--and was the perfect coin for turning into hacienda tokens in the late 1800s, each hacienda countermarking the coins with its own mark (here represented by C, D, K, Y, LDH, MC, NC, RC in oval, TF monogram, L-B-R and &, A VASSAUX, 3, 8, flowers, and even ornate incuse castle, crown or ceiba tree), the hosts ranging from Fine to XF (all brown, one closer to black) and the countermarks a bit better. With handwritten tags from the previous owner, one with personal greeting from Charlie Wyatt of the original Ponterio and Wyatt in 1983.
