Hatch's Restaurant, Lacrosse, Wisconsin counterstamp on 1869 Shield nickel. Brunk H-349. Extremely Fine

SOLD

Details

A scarce and distinctively precise mark, typically found on nickels dated in the 1870s. Medium nickel gray with no significant problems, aside from the expected flattening on the reverse. The mark is strong but for the last letter of HATCH'S. The corner of Main and 3rd streets in Lacrosse still has a standing building from the era,

so it's easy to picture dining within Hatch's big picture window. This mark was not represented in the enormous collection of countermarks sold in the September Americana sale by StacksBowers, and Stack's had only sold one example in the previous several years. I've always liked marks that were this informative. Maybe a postcard exists that would make for an ideal future exhibit or article?
