Rare 1840 Martin Van Buren Independent Treasury Eagle Campaign Token Medal For Sale
Here is a very niceearly campaign token or medal made of copper, I believe, in quitefinecondition overall, measuring app. 15/16" across,with a plain edge. This"Hard Times"-era pieceshows justmoderate wear really,andit hasfull detail, some small marks and light porosity not too disturbing.It had possibly been cleaned long ago, but I have had this for years, andI have not cleaned it in any manner. Four of the scans have been "enhanced" for clarity, and this token is identified in DeWitt's campaign reference book asMVB 1840-8. Rulau identifies it as HT 77, and it has been neatly holed at the top. The latter book reads "These pieces may not have seen currency use", but this token appears to have circulated to me.
The obverse depicts Martin in period dress and facing right, with "M. Van Buren" at the top, the balance of the border composed of twenty-six stars, with a small open wreath at the bottom..
The reverse features an eagle with a barred shield on its breast, arrows and an olive branch in its talons, and around the top is "Independent Treasury", with "July. 4. 1840" at the bottom. Outstanding Americana! $9.99
