Why add the Mint State 63 (1861-1865) United States Our Army Civil War Token in Story Vault Holder to your collection?
This (1861-1865) United States Our Army Civil War Token was graded Mint State 63 Red by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). It is also a fascinating piece of American History. "Civil War" or "Hard Times" tokens were privately issued at times when the official U.S. coinage was being hoarded. This issuance helped to transact business in the absence of regular coinage. There are "store cards" and "sutler" tokens which were issued by merchants and there were patriotic tokens, like the example here, issued by die makers.
Classic Civil War Token obverse
The obverse of the token features the image of an Indian Chief, similar in some respects to the familiar James Longacre Indian cent obverse. The reverse features the inscription "Our Army" over which a single star appears. The reverse is ringed with a floral motif.
