1860 NY65 1860 Merchant Token NY65

Merchant Token NY65. Issed in 1858, 1859, 1860 and 1861 using 5 different addresses. This is made of lead with some remnant of the copper plating remaining. The weight is 174 grains. It was made by Samuel H Black and electroplater from NY. This token reads "Friend & Black Electrotypers" on the obverse and "Medals, Cards & C. to Order" on the reverse. It looks like a real large cent. The address is listed center reverse as 25 Howard St N.Y. His business disappears from NY directories after 1861. I bought this on eBay 12/20/09.

This HT token has been hard for me to aquire. It is collected as a slave token. I have been looking for while but I wasnt willing to spend $200 for a nicer one. This one is very sweet save for some reverse scrs or tooling above and below the date....otherwise the color and surfaces are choice. ex JOhn Foreman 10/17/09 I removed it from a NCS AU Details Slab.
