Argentinian Coin

It is most likely not an official counterstamp but a trade token of a merchant or farm owner or similar. I doubt it was in Argentina as most countries prohibit defacing or altering their own coins by law to maintain currency control. Number 80 may be a valuation or maybe a store, farm or some other identification. There used to be a source on the Web of the merchant tokens, may be worth looking for or asking around.
