    I bought a Civil War token yesterday abd am waiting for it's delivery now as well. This is the first and only one I've acquired so far. 1863, NY 630BO-2a issued by Edward Schulze’s Restaurant in New York City. Or so I've been told, LOL...

    What do ya think?

    Take Care

    I paid $35 for it with $2 for shipping. I love to hunt deer and this one caught my eye for obvious reasons.

    Thats fair price for a nice pc. I believe its choice pc. Worth a bit more than catalog value.

    Quick question. About how big is it? Chuckle, I really don't know. Looks to be about 18-20mm or penny size.

    That's a great looking token in above averae condition. I have a few tokens but they are all patriotic tokens, not merchant tokens.

    Yeah, definitely one you need to look out for. I'd imagine he's been a Christmas Dinner memory for some time now. But maybe his genes have been passed along :)

    My fingers are crossed ;)

    Very nice.
    But, as you may have noted, it is from NY.
    So--- Just package it up and return it home, use my address for mailing and I will forward it for you.

    Wow, a blast from the past... Jemipast, that's pretty cool. Apparently there weren't many of these struck when compared to 1863 IHCs, but when it comes to CWT, well there are A LOT of these still around. How valuable is it? I really don't know, $35 sounds about right, but sentimental-value and worth are related but very different. Chuckle, Phoenix, no this one like 99.9% of my collection will remain raw. Frank, why would I do that? I got it from a fellow in NY... :D

    I must have missed this one first time around. Nice cwt, bone! Id of that one is NY 630BO-2a. It is an R1 rarity token (you can never trust Rulau's with cwts). Kanzinger's listed this token at $20 in unc in his 2002 book, which was fairly accurate at the time, but the past year or two has seen cwt values skyrocketing. Your token was made with reverse die 1292, and Schultze also made a token using die 1291. 1291 is very similar to yours but some features are located in slightly different positions. There are also 7 metal variations. If you want to watch for the 1291 die to have a set, look for the antler prong that is under the "C" of "EXCHANGE" to be under the "H" instead.
