This one's for you <k>

The 1794 US Large Cent is rare...only 81,000 minted. Three varieties known. High relief portrait, normal relief portrait, and one counterstamped k. Should be <k> but we'll let that discrepancy slide. Only one example known and highly sought after because of it.  :)

A coin, tortured in my own name.  >:(

Thank you for gaslighting me, Bruce.  :'(

An upside down K is a K in distress, as any flag-o-logue can tell you. On a coin with a personification of Liberty, with the word spelled out, this must refer to the UK COVID-19 lockdown. K is locked up in his own home. Can someone send him a thread saw in a hollow coin, please? :D
