Yes a garage/vise/hammer job. More of these are showing up because they are being discussed on a number of coin sites and guys are going out to the garage and testing what a hammer job really is.

Well Ebay removed the coin from auction. They informed me that the item was infringing one their counterfeit coin policies. I find it odd since it is an original mint product. I should get more details from ebay in the next couple days. Oh well, I learn everyday...

You listed it as counterstamped and it isn't. You were trying to sell it as an error and it's been faked.

I never mentioned or proposed it was a mint error coin... My understanding now is that the word ''counter-stamped'' was not appropriate for this particular coin.
