    1864 MI-225Y-6d Detroit Token, MS65
    Francis Eccard
    Unique Copper-Nickel Piece

    1864 Francis Eccard, Detroit, MI, F-225Y-6d, R.10, MS65 NGC. A Detroit tobacconist, Francis Eccard was located at 128 Randolph, according to the 1862-63 Detroit City Directory. Eccard was born in Prussia about 1822 and apparently died prior to 1880. He was married to Therese and they had three children listed in the 1870 Census. His listing appears in an 1853 Detroit directory, although no record is found in the 1850 Census, perhaps dating his immigration.
    This is one of two copper-nickel varieties known for Eccard, and both are unique. Like many of the copper-nickel Detroit tokens, this piece was made by Stanton of Cincinnati, and features the 1864 Indian Head reverse. A small wedge-shaped die break in the dentils below the date is diagnostic for the reverse die. This highly lustrous Gem has lovely light tan surfaces and nearly full field reflectivity.
    Purchased from C. Verhoeven (3/14/1946) for $2.50.
    From The Clifton A. Temple Collection.
