Italian 10 cent. with PANANTI counterstamp
« on: July 15, 2020, 10:28:47 AM »
I recently obtained an Italian 10 centimes coin of Umberto I, (189)3 R with the following counterstamp:

P.PANANTI
DIGOMANO

The counterstamp, probably Italian, was applied with a single punch. This punch look likes one used by Gun or Clock makers.

Dicomano is a small city in Italy but the C is more like a G. I could not find any meaning for Digomano.

The counterstamp is not listed in the Brunk world counterstamp book (I have the first edition)

I couldn't find anything on this one, Henk. Nothing in any references that I have. I have some updated material from Brunk (2013) but nothing on Italian counterstamps.

I think the C is actually a C and not a G. Dicomano makes sense but not Digomano Who ever P. Pananti was must have been a merchant in the city. Hopefully someone with access to older Italian records will chime in later and identify him.
