1838 Hard Times Token, "am I Not A Woman" **sharp Detail - Rich Color** For Sale

1838 Hard Times Token,

This is, perhaps, the most famous Hard Times Token, “AM I NOT A WOMAN & A SISTER,” HT 81, Low 54. This example has a very attractive copper-brown tone, and exhibits unusually sharp detail. It is a rare piece of American history, and a true prize for collectors.

The period of economic hardship during Van Buren's presidency (the Panic of 1837) came to be known as the "Hard Times". With America in a deep recession, people began hoarding coins as a safeguard, and small change disappeared from the marketplace. In response, merchants began buying tokens from private mints so they could make change in business transactions.

In late 1837 the American Anti-Slavery Society, located at 143 Nassau Street, New York, commissioned the firm of Gibbs Gardner & Co. of Belleville, N.J. to strike copper tokens, including HT 81, the Kneeling Female. They were made of copper with a reverse similar to legal U.S. cents.

The lighter photographs help bring out the details, though the darker photos more accurately show the actual coin.
