I don't mind, especially since I got it for what I consider to be a good price.

First, a little clarification: It is a Merchant Token, which predates the Civil War (I'm from Mississippi, so I cringe to call it that). It is actually the only Merchant Token from Mississippi in Russel Rulau's token book. This token was struck in several different metals, and it is hard to tell from those pictures, but  this one appears to be a Miller 3, which is copper, or maybe a Miller 4, which is brass. If it is copper, it does not look like it has original surfaces, but since I have not seen an M3 for sale since I have been collecting them, I was willing to give it a shot. I have an M4 in AU that I bought years ago for around $100, and, even though those don't come up for sale all that often, right now, there are two for sale on Ebay . One looks AU, and is $150 plus $16.50 shipping :whatthe:, and the other is an NGC MS63, for $300.

So, having said all of that, I got this one for $50, including shipping.

Wow I will remember that! Merchant token, I stand corrected glad I know that now and learned something. Awesome merchant, pre-civil war very impessive win and find! Sincerely, Capone1929

Nice coins, Ryan, Rollo, and Irvin. :applause:

I received the token that I had posted previously, and it looks better in hand than in the seller's pics. It has definitely seen some circulation, and I still think it has been cleaned at some point, but it looks a lot less "messed with" than I was expecting. And, it is the plain-edge copper version, too. :)

Seller's pictures first, then mine:

Very nice looking coin. Nice detail and appears to be free of hairlines for an AU55.

I agreed, I thought it would go for MS60PL.. but I'm wrong.

55 wow looks like someone needs to clean their looking device! According to my 50 greatest collected us coins guide, that's under graded, possibility should be resubmitted I've seen much worse with better grade!

Either CAC is strict on Peace dollars, or there are marks that I can't see. That looks like a 66 all day long to me.

Great coin for the  type set Lee and in a old fatty holder. :banana:(thumbsu

Much thanks.  Fit in my budget too. How often does that happen? Not often enough for me.  :smile:

It does have a little gouge on the tail feathers which shouldn't hold it back.
