   HT 353       Low 92       VF-35       R-1   
Bucklin's Interest Tables. Copper, 28.5mm. 1835. T* under date.

Crudely struck as always. This is by far the most common of the Bucklin pieces.

   HT 355       Low 93       XF 45 BN       R-4   

Bucklin's Interest Tables. 1835. Copper. 28.5mm. TRUE ALB under date. Details...

Obv: Minor striking weakness at 2:00, which is typical of this piece.

Rev: Die breaks add visual interest. Faint signature TRUE ALB. can be seen below the date. Reverse die breaks are almost always seen on this piece, indicating the reverse die deteriorated early on in the minting process.

Stack's November 12, 2003 sale, lot 1340.

   HT 357A       Low 145       VF Details       R-4   

Bucklin's Book Keeping. West Troy, N.Y. (1835). Smaller thin flan. Copper. Weight of 6.4 grams and diameter of 27.2mm, but heavier than Rulau's 4-5 grams. Details...

This piece is equivalent in quality and grade to Rulau plate. Very dark toning overall. Good looking token for this variety and impossible to find better.

Rev: Some pitting below "T" in TROY and in "E" of KEEPING.

   HT 361       Low 79       MS 62 BN       R-4   

W. P. Haskins. Troy, NY. 1834. Copper. 28.5mm. Lafayette H.

Even, medium brown color. There are several issues with this same obverse, but this Haskins piece is by far the most elusive.

Rev: Weakly struck at top.

The John J. Ford Collection (Stack's, June 23, 2004, lot 151).
Ex. F.C.C. Boyd Estate.

   HT 362       Low 80       XF-40       R-1   

W.P Haskins. 1834 Schenk. Copper. 28.5mm. See also HT-157.

Very Fine. This token is quite underrated as to sacrcity and is missing from many advanced collections.

Rev: Pinpoint pit to left of "H" in HASKINS.

Unsold from Springfield sale, September 22, 1981, lot 2531.

   HT 363       Low 271       XF 45       R-1   

J & C Peck. (1835). Copper. 28.5mm.

   HT 366       Low 156       AU 55 BN       R-6   

N. Starbuck & Son. Troy, NY. (1835). Copper. 28mm. No stars under head. Details...

A glossy brown example of this token which is always found in a worn condition. This piece is far better struck than almost every other example, save for the 1989 Steinberg sale piece. This example is probably the second finest known!

The John J. Ford Collection (Stack's, June 23, 2004, lot 298).
Ex. F.C.C. Boyd Estate.

   HT 368       Low 284       XF 45 BN       R-2   

N. Starbuck & Son. Troy, NY. (1835). Copper. 29.2mm. From study of HT 368 specimens, it is certain there were at least three striking -normal, dies rotated 90 degrees, and dies rotated 180 degrees. All plain edge.

Glossy medium brown surfaces compliment an amazing strike.

Obv: Plow in multi-line legend.

Rev: Vividly struck and detailed, two weak areas as made in outer rim.

Stack's November 12, 2003 sale, lot 1346.

   HT 375       Low 312       AU 50       R-6   

P. Evens. Cincinnati, Ohio. (1830's) German Silver. 24mm. Details...

   HT 375B       UNC 65       R-8   

P. Evens. Cincinnati, Ohio. (1830's) Gilt Brassr. 24mm. On 375B, the ornament above SELECTION is not a rosette, but a crosslike device.

Choice uncirculated with full gilding. Struck by Bale from a complete different pair of dies than HT 375.

The Litman, Dreyfus & Sullivan Collections (PCAC sale #73, December 4, 2004, lot 70).

   HT 377       Low 158       F-25       R-7   

A. LOOMIS, CLEVELAND, OH. 1834. Copper. 28.4mm. Arrows right and left. Details...

This is the finest known of this rare token!

Obv: Well-centered on smooth defect-free surface. It is weakly struck at top so that the tops of most of the letters in CLEVELAND are weak. The eagle's breast & wings show considerable detail.

Rev: Some minor rim filing at 2:00pm

The Charles Litman Collection, PCAC sale #72, December 6, 2003, lot 114.
Probably Ex. Donald Miller Collection.

   HT 380       Low 319       VF 30 BN       R-6

   HT 381       Low 320       AU 55 BN       R-5   

A. LOOMIS. CLEVELAND, OH. (1840's). 6 Stars Above. HT-381 is 30.7mm, plain edge.

Exceptional condition for this token which usually appears no better than Very Fine and is often very badly centered.

The Litman, Dreyfus & Sullivan Collections (PCAC sale #73, December 4, 2004, lot 75).

   HT 381B       Low 320B       AU 50       R-8   

A. LOOMIS, CLEVELAND, OH. (1840's). 9.5mm. Copper. Fully reeded Edge.

The Charles Litman Collection, PCAC sale #72, December 6, 2003, lot 130. (Not from the Litman Collection itself.)

   HT 399       Low 181       XF-45       R-6   

CHARLES W. BENDER, PHILADELPHIA, PA. 1842. German Silver. 16mm. Details...

Uniface. Die is just beginning to fill along lower right side with the result that the beads from 4-6:00 are weak. In later stages, the right side of the 4 is very weak, however, on this example it is bold.

The Charles Litman Collection, PCAC sale #72, December 6, 2003, lot 123.
Probably Ex. Donald Miller Collection.
