1834 Andrew Jackson Congressional Campaign Plain System Donkey Hard Timestoken For Sale
Here is a very niceearly campaign token or medal made of copper, in quitefinecondition overall, measuring app. 1 & 1/8" across,with a plain edge. ThisCongressional Election "Hard Times" pieceshows justmellow, evenwear,andthe designs havefull, crispdetail, some small marks nothing tooserious. It is a bit softly struck at the upper left on the obverse, as well at the upper reverse, and I have not cleaned it in any manner.Some tiny light lines near the animal's face are only on the scanner - sorry about that! Four of the scans have been "enhanced" for clarity, and this token is identified in DeWitt's campaign reference book as CE 1834-14. Rulau identifies it as HT 25.
The obverse depicts Andrew Jackson holding bursting money bags with his sword upraised, and around is "A Plain System - Void Of Pomp", with stars at the sides.
The reverse pictures a donkey facing right, with "LL.D." across, "Roman Firmness" above and "1834" beneath. Around is "The Constitution - As I Know It". Great political Americana! $4.99
