Raised SE countermark
The 'cayenne stuiver' was a 2 sous coin minted in the West Indies (Colonie de Cayenne) by the French government, that was used on a lot of non-French islands in the region (including Saint Martin, Saint Bartholomew etc) as well.
According to Publication 15-12-1797 the 'Cayenne Stuivers' and similar coins, were countermarked with the letters 'SE'. Smith Pierre dit Flamand was sworn in to make the stamps. On 23-1-1798 a new publication warned for counterfeits and stating that only the old marked, old plain, old Danish and Dutch Stuivers remained of value. Later, in 1809, these coins were marked again, this time with a 'P'.
KM lists these coins as existing next to copper and silver coins, although the existance of the latter two are not mentioned by Scholten and are therefor questionnable. In addition 'cayenne stuivers' with raised counter marks are considered forgeries by most authors.
