SOLD 1863 Civil War Token One Country . COIN57

American Civil War Token. Indian Head design on one side of token with the date 1863. The other side is the wording: Our Country, Broas Pie Bakery, 131 41st NY. Very worn condition.


Additional Notes: Civil War Tokens appeared in the early 1860s because there were severe shortages of U.S. government-issued coins.  Regular cents of that era were strongly hoarded, so private individuals started making small copper coins to meet the demands of local commerce. The government caught up eventually, and Civil War Tokens disappeared after supply caught up. These interesting Civil war token have a nice collector following today and are a nice character item from the U.S. Civil War.
