1863 CWT Union Volunteer Refreshment Saloon Philadelphia PA Fuld 750W-1a, R5 XF+
Date: The token is dated 1863.
Origin: Unknown but most likely struck in Philadelphia, PA.
Reference: Fuld 750W-1a with a rarity index R5.
Weight and Size: The token weighs ~3.2 grams and is ~19 millimeters in diameter.
Marks: Unmarked as to the maker.
Condition: I would grade the token as extremely fine or better. The token shows minor wear to the high points but is still well preserved. It shows some brilliance in some spots along the edge (at 4 o'clock on obverse and 2 o'clock on the reverse). It also has a few scratches and bag marks most pronounced is the scratch starting at the F in fair and ending at the J in June on the reverse. Be that as it may, this is a nice and well-preserved example of this scarce (R5) merchant token from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to add to your collection. Please view photos for additional condition information.
