William W. Wilbur is infamous for having been an saleeer and agent who operated in business during the pre-Civil War era of Charleston, South Carolina. While Wilbur’s business included sales, retail sales, notary services he is most notoriously connected with the practice of selling slaves at sale. Wilbur issued Trade Tokens beginning in about 1846 - these Tokens were he size of U.S. Large Copper Cents, and were honored by Wilbur at the value of one cent. While newspaper advertisements of the period show that Wilbur sold a wide range of goods and real estate many of those same advertisements also include the horrific listing of human beings being sold as property to the high buyer.


We are not coin or token dealers and do not know how to grade this type of brass Trade Token but have included high quality scans of the token which give a very good indication of the condition. There is some verdigris on areas of both sides of the Token and wear to the high spots of the strike. Please see the scans below for a good indication of the condition of this rare Trade Token.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
