Well, I haven't added to my book in a while, so let me give you one I recently acquired. OH 400A-2a (R4)
The token has a 90 degree rotation from coin alignment on the reverse, making it yet another CWT error coin. I also think this one may have been cleaned somewhere in the past as the surfaces seem a bit muted for the condition.

From the Hillsboro, OH, Hardware, Iron & Nail shop.

Sometimes, others tell the history far better... here's a portion of Capt. Kibler's obituary.

Love that one too.
That anvil on the reverse didn't leave any question about his business working in metal.

My most recent acquisition. Not a coin, but it fits nicely with all my Civil War Tokens, complete Indian Head Cent collection, and Civil War Newspapers.
A campaign token for Abraham Lincoln and Hannibal Hamlin. Yep, those are tin photos of each. Known as a ferrotype photo. This was for Lincoln's run for president in 1860, before the Civil War.

Thanks Mark. Absolutely fantastic. So interesting to see something with his image from before he became president.
It amazes me that the tin is still intact after 159 years.

How did you happen to come across this? .... Auction?

I follow Steve Hayden. Huge collector of Civil War and Hard Times tokens. He put out a letter that let me know he was selling this.

Thanks Mark.
I wonder if he upgraded and that was why he was selling? No matter though because it's in good hands now! :thumbsup:
