J. WENZEL Counterstamp on 1863 Cent obverse J. WENZEL Counterstamp on 1863 Cent reverse

137 - IN715A-2d Unlisted Raw VF J. WENZEL counterstamped on the obverse of an 1863 Indian Head Cent. Although it was decided not to list this piece since it could have been struck after the Civil War, Steve kept it in his Indiana Civil War Token collection. From the Steve Tanenbaum collection earlier from Dave Schenkman at the 1974 ANA convention. (200-300)

A nicely struck and centered counterstamp. The reverse clearly shows wear opposite the stamp, indicating that the coin saw circulation after being overstruck. -Editor
