1822 8 Reales With The American Counterstamp "g. J. Prescott." For Sale

Unlisted in the Brunk reference...the "G. J. PRESCOTT" counterstamp on a holed 1822 8 reales piece. While this counterstamp is unlisted in the Brunk book, I have seen one other example on a large cent. It is certainly of American origin and may be the mark of
