    Henry Clay 1844 Presidential Campaign Token

    I thought I would share a Campaign Token that I found awhile back. I am not for sure what the Value of this would be? but is my oldest token so far that I have dug and that means alot to me.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    This referenced token appears to be similar to yours.
    Unfortunately, one has to register to find out what it sold for a few years ago. Nor does it state (in the information provided) when the token was made.

    The most recent edition (2004) of Hake's price guide lists this Clay medalet at $45. That was an increase of over 11.5% from the previous edition (1998). So, it is probably now worth at least $50. The hole is as made/issued and does not affect the value.

    Nova, that's a nice token. Did you find it at an old home site?

    Hey Sounds Great PBK, Thanks for the Great info.
    I will never Sell them, but it is nice to see the value for Insurance purposes.
    Thanks Again, Bill

    Thanks KK, Yes, I actually found it about 10 steps from my front door at my 170 yr old Home.

    Thanks again, Bill

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
