Why add this 1861-65 Civil War Token F-51/334 Our Army NGC MS64 RD in Story Vault Holder to your collection?
This 1861-65 Civil War Token F-51/334 a Our Army makes a great piece for several types of collectors, including those who have served or are serving in the Army, as well as those with an interest in Civil War and/or monetary history. The image on the obverse is borrowed from but not an exact copy of the Indian Head cent designed by James Longacre. It features a young Native American with long hair and a feathered headdress facing to the left side of the token. Thirteen stars arch over the image with an empty space left on the bottom where the year of issue was printed on the penny. Dominating the reverse is a large inscription of the words “OUR ARMY,” a patriotic theme that honored those fighting for the North in the bloody war. The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) gave this token a grade of MS64 RD. The RD indicates the color of the token, red, while MS64 is a grade given to coins and tokens that retain average luster, had average strikes, and have several small and possibly one or two larger contact marks. The slabbed coin was then encapsulated in a special holder with a card, carrying its story.

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.
