No, not at all.... It is called a bar token due to the thirteen parallel bars on the reverse that represent the thirteen colonies. They traded in commerce with the same value as a cent.
Ohhh ok xD.
I only asked because I know in the Wild West they had brothel tokens for prostitutes ("Good for 1 screw") and they also had tokens for general stores so I figured maybe some bars had tokens of their own or something. Lol!
That's seriously #1 on my most desired coins list.
Basically any American pre-1800 gold coin.
Like many, I have several favorites, but one of the tops would be this commoner. I remember as a teen I loved how this looked with a bit of circulated wear, some lady with wings on her head and something on the reverse I had no idea what it was. It showed artistic beauty and typical monetary use...simplistic and beautiful. This first Mercury purchase started a long love/lust relation with dimes.
Same. Not even going to attempt but enjoying everyone else's.
The favorite coin I was able to purchase was this recent cherry pick of a 1796 NC-2 and is either the 10th or 11th known.
Nice coin. I must have the wrong friends!
Beauty! What's the grade, if you don't mind saying?
It's in a PCGS AU-58 holder with CAC green bean.
behind the Indian's head. What's not to like?
probably knocks about 25c of collector value off it from wear each time. Before you get too upset, hidden under that bezel is the worst rim nick [rim gouge?] I have ever seen. I know, it's weird, but I value human relationships more than material things. And in case you haven't guessed, my wife's name is Charlotte.
Thanks for the reply...Let's see if my pics remain this time.
My Chris Columbus 18something coin. Only coin I really wanted @lordmarcovan
Wow that’s fancy
