|The picture shows a close view of both sides of this 1800's Fanueil Hall Clothes Warehouse Massachusetts Advertising Hard Times Token. As I understand it, there were times in the 1800's when there was a shortage of metals for minting coins. Many businesses had minted their own and took advantage of this opportunity to advertise on them. This coin is believed to have had a value of one cent. It is made of copper. On one side it reads:|
FANUEIL HALL CLOTHES WAREHOUSE
The other side reads:
CASSIMERES & VESTINGS.
Wm. H. MILTON
Nos. 4 & 6
The coin measures 1-1/8" wide and it is in very good condition with all wording being readable, but does have a hole to be used as a medallion.
