Rulau 962/962A? - 1829 C. Wolfe Spies & Clark Token
Bought a double row token box at coin club from someone who bought out a retired dealer's inventory about 20 years ago. He doesn't deal with tokens at all, so it had sat for many years untouched. He brought it to coin club just to get rid of. Unfortunately, I was 2nd to get to look at the box (1st guy picked several thousand dollars out of the box - about 1/4 of it). Guy was so happy with what the 1st guy paid him, when he handed it to me, said $X and you can have what's left. I couldn't resist.
There is a lot of cheap transportation and silly modern president tokens. After 2 quick sorts, I think there will end up being about 100 other tokens go in that $3-10 price range, nothing to write home about. I think I'm down to a couple dozen that I think are better tokens that I still need to research, but picked what I think will be the best of the bunch to start with.
So... the 2x2 just had Page 44 - 962? 1829 C. Wolfe on it.
It has a reeded edge, but has some damage to it
My Rulau books are buried at the moment, so just did googling.
There is a silver plated brass one on eBay called Rulau 962fpb, found only a couple in past other online auctions, mostly holed, lower graded ones. Does anybody know the difference with 962 and 962A (or an fpb)?
Stacks has an older auction that is somewhat similar - same exact marks on the Jackson side and scratch on Washington side (thoughts on that later).
Anyone care to venture a grading guess?
The pops are pretty low here and ATS from what I can find, I'm guessing it would have been a winner without the reeding issues, but thought it was neat enough to share.
