Date: 1863. 

Origin: Purchased at an estate auction in southeastern Pennsylvania, USA. 

Reference: Fuld 233/312 a.

Weight and Size: The token weighs ~3.0 grams and is ~19 millimeters in diameter. 

Artist: Unknown.

Maker: Scovill Manufacturing Co. 

Marks: Unmarked as to the maker. 

Condition: I would grade this token as a nice very fine or better. The token shows even little wear. The token has a sizable ding in the field to the left of the capitol dome with some additional small scratches on the obverse, which are very difficult to photograph. The reverse is in better condition than the obverse with clear field. Both sides of the token show some signs of luster along the edges and have nice and well-preserved details. I would have graded the token as about uncirculated if not for the issues on the obverse mentioned above. Be that as it may, the token has nice eye appeal and is a nice patriotic Civil War token, which would make a nice addition to your collection. Please view photos for additional condition information.
