At several points in our nation's history, a shortage of coins was offset by merchants issuing private tokens. This section includes Hard Times Tokens, Civil War Tokens, and Feuchtwanger Coins.
HT-9. Running Boar. A needle-sharp strike with vivid luster over nearly flawless chocolate brown surfaces. Super quality!
HT-262. Lewis Feuchwanger produced One Cent & Three Cent pieces struck in a variety of German silver consisting of nickel, copper, and some zinc. We frequently handle the One Cent, but the Three Cent is truly scarce. Ex: Donald G Patrick Collection.
Well struck with nice original lustrous surfaces. Lewis Feuchtwanger was a German born chemist who moved to New York City in 1827. He issued one cent tokens made of 'German Silver' consisting of nickel, copper and zinc.
CAC. An incredible piece of Confederate history. Robert Lovett engraved and struck Confederate Cents in 1861 of which 13-16 are known. He then sold the dies to John Haseltine and J. Colvin Randall who struck 55 copper coins before the dies broke. This is one of the better surviving examples with smooth problem-free surfaces that retain a fair amount of faded mint red.
Wailuku Plantation. 12 1/2c. Narrow Starfish. Well struck with even brown surfaces. Scarce and very desirable.
