What The Experts Say...

HT 265A, Low 119A
LOW 119. FEUCHTWANGER THREE CENT PIECE. HT 265. 23.6mm. Feuchwanger’s Composition.

The obverse is similar to #118, but the eagle and rocks are smaller and the date larger. The reverse legend: FEUCHTWANGER’S COMPOSITION encloses an oak wreath closed at the top by the numeral “3”. THREE/ CENTS at center.

This is by far the rarest of the three cent Feuchtwanger tokens. The triple struck 1989 Steinberg specimen was brought back at $6600.00 and then sold at the 2002 Steinberg sale for $9775.00.

HT 265 and 265A are the same token, the difference being the latter is called “Proof”. We suspect that the present specimen would qualify in most collectors’ minds as a 265A, as we have called it, here.
