In the early 19th century in America, money has not always been in a good supply. In order for there to be change, there were two options, the ever unstable paper money or a privately made token. There are three categories of these tokens, the political token, the store card and the one made to resemble an actual circulating coin.
i have a new obsession in a fairly small area of numismatics. The tokens or medals in question are so called dollars. I have currently four so-called dollars with three being the finest or tied for finest known. The one that is not the finest is only beat by two other deep proof likes at NGC. Does anyone else have the obsession of so-called dollars.
