Description1863 Philip Bach, Ann Arbor, MI, F-40A-2do, R.8 - Improperly Cleaned - NGC Details. Unc. In addition to his career in the dry goods business, Philip Bach was involved in other business and civic matters. He served a term as mayor of Ann Arbor in 1858, and served on the local school board for more than 30 years. He also served as president of the First National Bank of Ann Arbor from 1882 until his death in 1895.
Struck over an 1862 Indian cent, the date from the undertype is visible at 5:30 on the reverse of this token, within the letters of ARBOR. The undertype is boldly visible on both sides of this satiny golden-tan example.
Cliff Temple purchased a number of tokens from B. Gilman, and wrote that "Gilman lived in California and was said to be a nephew of Dr. Hetrick, and was selling a portion of the Hetrick collection to finance a gold mining operation."
Purchased from B. Gilman (12/3/1937).
