    Description

    1863 F.A. Burkhart, Detroit, MI, F-225L-3a, R.7, MS66 Red and Brown NGC. There were quite a few errors when making this obverse die. Francis J. Burkart (the correct middle initial and spelling of the last name), Butcher, issued this Store Card. The business is listed on the die as being located at the corner of Hastings and Gratoit [sic]. The business is listed as a meat market in the 1863 Detroit City directory, located 210 Gratiot, the correct spelling of the street name. However the address is listed as 219 Gratiot in the 1862, 1864 and 1865 directories. The last name is spelled "Burkart" in the 1863, 1864 and 1865 directories, thus his last name is also probably misspelled on the Store Card. An amazing Premium Gem, the obverse is virtually full red with only faint violet toning. The reverse has considerable red with violet and brown toning.
    Purchased from James Kelly (5/7/1943) for 35 cents.
    From The Clifton A. Temple Collection.
