Seated Dollar Counterstamp Help

Hello everyone,

I bought this 1859-O seated liberty dollar at my local coin show this morning. It's counterstamped "R.J. SOULES" on the obverse.

I was curious if anyone could help me find ID brunk catalog listing for it? I know it's listed, but I'm having trouble finding the exact number.

    That's a cool counterstamped dollar, YoloBagels.

    It's Brunk S-722, and found on page 440 of the last edition of Brunk.

    It notes the counterstamp on an 1853 half dollar.

    Kind regards- 1TwoBits

    Searching for bust quarters.....counterstamps, errors, and AU-MS varieties, please let me know if you can help.

    According to google, their was an R.J. Soules born in Texas on 1906 and died in 1910. Only 4 years old, might be a good reason to counterstamp it for a memory piece.

    Seems like the jeweler made some store tokens and perhaps gave a discount for customers who brought in a stamped coin. Cheers, RickO
