    1865 Miners Brewery & Bakery, MS61
    Rare Idaho City, Idaho Civil War Token

    1865 Miners Brewery & Bakery, Idaho City, Idaho, MS61 NGC. Fuld-ID350A-1a, Rulau-Id-IC-3, R.7. Many a Civil War token collector would scoff if told that there was a variety issued in Idaho Territory during the Civil War. But there was, and it is the furthest west of any Civil War token issuer, as well as the sole Idaho variety. Miners Brewery is mentioned in a newspaper ad in the January 21, 1865 Idaho World. Circulated examples appear at auction every few years, but we can find no prior auction records in Uncirculated grades. This lavender-brown representative displays light strike doubling on the reverse, likely due to a loose hammer die. The surfaces display infrequent minor granularity, and a few specks of aqua residue are noted.
