11467383
Choice $425 Choice Original, Feuchtwanger Token, Woodlands Collection. A choice example of the one cent Feuchtwanger token. Just a touch of rub on the obverse eagle's shoulder is visible. A very well struck example with crisp eagles feathers. Wikipedia provides an explanation on why Feuchtwanger tokens were struck and circulated during the "Hard Times". The Feuchtwanger Cent was a "German Silver" private token coin circulated by Lewis Feuchtwanger during the 1830-40s in the U.S. Three cent varieties were also available, though not as plentiful as the one cent tokens. The tokens were originally created as patterns to demonstrate a new type of metal for coinage, however when these proposals failed, they were temporarily used by the public during depressions to accommodate a small change shortage.
