US Civil War Token – Army and Navy . CoinCW40

U.S. Civil War Token. Army and Navy. Wording “Army & Navy” on one side and on the other side is the wording “The Federal Union It Must and Shall Be Preserved”.

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.
