Saturday morning coffee with coins

DCWDCW Posts: 6,876 ✭✭✭✭✭

It's Saturday. I've got my daughter off to ballet, coffee in hand as I sit in the parking lot relaxing with thoughts on the hobby.
Post a coin, token, or medal and share something interesting...
F.R.Behr. Detroit, MI. PCGS AU53

This is one of my favorite tokens of all time. F.R. Behr operated a saloon/bowling alley during the Civil War and issued these 19mm copper tokens that were good for a glass of beer. An obvious play on his last name, the token has a dancing bear with beer spilling from his mug on the obverse, and a bowling ball with a pin resting on it on the reverse.
One of the coolest designs on any Civil War token, hands down!

    Saturday coffee with coins didn’t happen.

    Last I checked it’s the highest graded for the date. I love the color on this one and has resided in my collection for many years.
