    1796 S-107, B-13 Cent, VG Details
    L.P. Knerr Counterstamp

    1796 1C Reverse of 1794, S-107, B-13, R.5 -- Damage -- PCGS Genuine. VG Details. L.P. Knerr Counterstamp. PCGS has elected to call this coin "Damaged" due to the counterstamp but the reality is that this splendid piece is really two coins in one. The lovely dark olive and chocolate-brown surfaces are finely granular but exceptionally attractive for the grade. Aside from the counterstamp, this piece would rank fifth finest known of the S-107 cents. Our EAC grade VG10.

    Levi P. Knerr was born in Pennsylvania on September 30, 1820, and died at Reading, Pennsylvania on May 24, 1876. He was a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army who served in the Mexican-American War. According to Reading city directories, Knerr was a machinist.
