    Andrew Jackson THE BANK MUST PERISH THE UNION SHALL BE PRE-SERVED token 1832 (?!)

    I recovered this token this evening on Long Island. I thought it was a Large Cent initially but it felt thinner. After starting the process of cleaning it off (mild soap and water only) it clearly says ANDREW on the left (obverse) and JACKSON on the right. On the reverse across the top, it reads THE BANK MUST PERISH and in the middle it reads THE UNION MUST AND SHALL BE PRE-SERVED

    I've never found anything like this but it appears to be identical to the one in this link (which blows me away if it is):

    Andrew Jackson Campaign and Hard Times Token Sullivan-DeWitt | Lot #25597 | Heritage Auctions

    Diameter is 27mm, weight is 4.99g. Pics below (also a sketch of the 1832 token for comparison). Any feedback is appreciated, since I'm very much a novice with tokens. Thanks!

    (EDIT: Updated pics below in post #8)

    Thanks for all the feedback-- my only other token find was a Chuck E. Cheese token (wish I was kidding).

    Still trying to reaearch that-- but I doubt few (if any) notable sales were for dug specimans, which would significantly affect value.

    A few more newer pictures (cleaner) compared to the sketch:
