Tokens | Longstrider

My next blog has been known to cause controversy in other venues, i.e. NGC blogs. Not only controversy but some people get downright angry. Let’s see how it goes here. Below you will see my example of a Dan Carr Token. This particular specimen is a 1917 Peace Dollar with the original design from artist/sculptor Anthony De Francisci. It is in the original high relief as well as the “broken sword” reverse. There are a couple of facts that I need to discuss now.

Today I am going to put up something entirely new to me. I am trying my luck at studying Civil War Tokens and Store Cards. Be gentle as I am just starting my studies and research. As you can see in the photos below, I am working on this 1863 Civil War Token. It is confusing to me as the dies that could have been used on both sides of the same token were used on tokens and store cards. The front of the token can be found on page 141 of the newest edition of Civil War Tokens and Store Cards. Second edition. It is Patriotic die 210. This side of the token features the Flag Of Our Union with 13 stars around it, the date 1863 and the Phrygian cap of freedom.
