    Lake hunt, found a strange wheatie??

    I only found two coins, a wheat and Jefferson. The Wheatie has initials beat into the coin. First time I've ever saw a wheatie like this. I was in the area where I had recently found my Franklin Half
    Enjoy the pix
    What are your thoughts on the wheat being a love token?

    That’s neat! I heard that sometimes they used to do that at certain stores to turn them into tokens. Not sure on this one!

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Yeah makes sense, the love tokens are usually much more eye appealing, plus the letters are very randomly placed and there is no "&" to denote a romantic couple.

    Thanks Don and Cuda

    Metal Detecting
    Coins have been counterstamped for many decades. The reasons are nearly endless, but I have seen a number over the years that were stamped with the purpose of turning the coin into a token of sorts that was to be used at a specific store.

    Here is a short explanation.

    I'm thinking someone may have done that to see if they ever received that coin back in circulation. Neat find.

    The reasons are numerous, I'm afraid that it's another one of those metal detecting mysteries that keep me interested in searching.
