    1863 MI-250E-1a Dowagiac Token, AU55
    D. Pond, Grocer

    1863 D. Pond, Dowagiac, MI, F-250E-1a, R.8, AU55 NGC. The 1860 Federal Census records Dennis Pond in Dowagiac, Michigan, a 34 year old grocer who was born in New York. He relocated from New York to Cass County, Michigan, prior to his June 10, 1855 marriage to Marilla Cotrell. The couple had two children, W.W. (born about 1856) and S.E. (born about 1860). Little else is known about Pond, although a few family trees at Ancestry.com suggest that he died in Michigan in August 1870.
    D. Pond is considered one of the rarest merchants in the Michigan store card series. This example represents the more plentiful variety, with five to 10 known examples. A distinctive piece with mahogany and olive surfaces, showing darker brown toning around the devices. Minor verdigris is visible with a glass.
    Purchased from James Kelly (12/20/1941) for 40 cents. Said to be from the Virgil Brand Collection.
    From The Clifton A. Temple Collection.
