American Civil War Token Redeem at Our Store 1863 . COIN62


American Civil War Token. Wording on one side: Redeem at Our Store 1863. Wording on the other side is: Robinson and Ballou Grocers Troy NY.  Very worn condition. In plastic snap display holder.


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.
