The enigmatic E and L counterstamps seen on certain early quarters were first described by numismatic catalogers in the 19th century, and are believed to originate from a secessionist vote at the Economite commune in Pennsylvania. A moderately glossy but unblemished gunmetal-gray representative that boasts pleasing design detail.
