    Anyone recognize this coin from Wooster?

    Found this coin. Looks like some kind of token. I believe it reads "Butter Packer" - "James Patrick Wooster Ohio". Found in a field about 40 miles from Wooster.

    Re: Anyone recognize this coin from Wooster?

    I did some research using just Wooster Ohio Tokens and seen that wooster did make some civil war period tokens. The reverse on your is pretty much like a large cent. Might be some that period bewteen 1864-68. Didn't find anything on James Patrick or Butter Packer.....keep us informer if you come up with anything.

    I posted on the "What Is It?" forum and it does indeed appear to be a civil war token. After more cleaning, I can make the date out to be 1863. The thread link is here: http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,233797.0.html

    It is a Merchant Token from the Civil War. It is known as OH975K-1a, James Patrick 1863
    Butter Packer, of Wooster, Ohio.
    James Patrick arrived in Wooster from New York City in 1852 when he bought a residence in Wooster. He rented space from James Jacobs & went in the butter & egg business. He just as quickly closed shop in 1863 & returned to New York City.
