Counterstamps on coins were a means of advertising businesses.  This 1845 E.M.Glynn Gunsmith counterstamped coin could indicate Edgar Glynn (1830 - 1887) was making guns as young as 15 years old, though it could also have just been a several year old coin when he did it.  Per the 1850 census he was working as a gunsmith by age 20.  See the article in the Artifacts collection about him.
