(1840-43) Hard Times Token, Philadelphia, PA: Snyder & Shankland, White Metal, Plain Edge, Low-unlis
A seldom seen token issued by Philadelphia drapers and tailors Jacob Snyder and John Shankland. These were struck in copper, brass, and white metal, and there are probably fewer than two dozen examples known across all compositions. This is a pleasing example with good surfaces considering the soft, volatile metal. XF detail with a few rim bumps, marks, and small spots of tin pest. Ex Goldberg’s 9/8/2009, lot 2423 – Phil Moore.
