127/428b R9 NGC MS-63 - Reduced $1550 $1725. About 10% bright in protected recesses. Rare and enigmatic C.L.R. die, which may indicate Charles Louis Roloff, a New York City diesinker. In a pristine NGC holder #2429201-006

115A/530ap R8 - Reduced $1375 $1500 the 6th Edition Patriotic catalog upgrades the rarity from R7 to R8. Very popular and distinctive “Don’t Tread on Me” slogan.

115/466g R9 Reduced $995 $1250 A rare token with the enigmatic initials H. H. and patriotic slogan “Union 1861.” The obverse die is used on several other patriotics. Because of the initials, this token has been added to the Storecard Catalog third revision under Location Unknown as LU-H-1g and its rarity confirmed as R9 (2 - 4 believed extant). I note only one other sale in my database by Ernie Latter on eBay Mar-2009, an NGC Good-4 which he advertised as the Fuld plate token and ex Q.D. Bowers. It brought $912. This token was purchased from Steve Hayden in Dec 2001. At that time Steve knew of one other piece besides that of Bowers, whose pedigree was Joe Kuenert to Larkin Wilson.
