Sage's Candy Coin countermark on 1874 With Arrows half dollar. Brunk S-86. Mark Very Fine, coin Good or so. Ex. Brunk Collection. The mark is bold and complete on central obverse on a host that has been well worn and shows even medium silver gray patina. Some minor marks are seen, none serious. This mark was apparently used as advertising by R.V. Pierce (aka "Dr. Sage") of Buffalo, New York for one of his patent medicines, apparently issued about 1874, the date most commonly found on host coins. A popular mark, always found on silver coins, still a bit controversial. This one was depicted on the cover of Brunk's sale catalogue by World Exonumia (June 29, 1999) and included as Lot 554. The auction ticket accompanies this piece.
