    1850's New York merchents token

    Here is a token I found in a hay field across the street from my house.
    This field has yielded bank tokens and large cents from 1830's-1850's

    Re: 1850's New York merchents token

    wow, that is a sweet find and to have that much information on it to back it up is cool. I've seen a lot of tokens that are fake indian heads during the civil war but never a fake large cent. Several years ago, I found an 1842 Bank of Montreal half penny with a merchant stamp on it, but nothing like that. Sweet find!! HH, lko_88

    No, but I did see some bottles on Ebay, not that I would ever pay for one
