Why add this 1861-65 Civil War Token F-51/334 a Our Army NGC MS65 RB in Story Vault Holder to your collection?
This 1861-65 Civil War Token F-51/334 a Our Army played an important role in facilitating commerce during a difficult period in American history. At the time, many people were hoarding government coins, so privately issued tokens were issued as a tool for trade. That makes this coin appealing to collectors who are students of monetary history, as well as Civil War buffs and those who have served in or otherwise have ties to the United States Army. “OUR ARMY” is inscribed on the reverse in large lettering. A star and a diamond are the only other two design elements in the center, though they are circled by a rim along the wreath. Thirteen stars encircle an image of a Native American on the obverse. Representing the original colonies and, by extension, union, those stars were powerful symbols at the time. The Native American is depicted wearing a feathered headdress, making the image almost identical to James Longacre’s Indian Head cent. The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this token MS65 RB, which indicates a reddish-brown color, as well as a high quality strike and luster, though there are some scattered contact marks. If you like pieces with intriguing stories behind them, this token is for you! It even comes in a special holder with a card carrying its story!

Whether you are new to coin collecting, or have been at it for decades, a good library of reference books is essential. While there is an abundance of information online, there is no substitute for having your own numismatic library.
Buried treasure is something that still exists today. Whether it is ancient Roman coins in Europe, Classic American coin in the U.S., or some other instance of accumulated wealth lost to time, coin hoards that have been found throughout the years can represent centuries of forgotten history.
