    Henry Porter, Cincinnati, Choice XF
    Very Rare Civil War Merchant

    Undated Henry Porter, Cincinnati, OH, XF45 NGC. Fuld-OH165EO-5b, R.9. All tokens from this issuer are extremely rare. A Henry Porter is listed in an 1863 Cincinnati directory as a barber, but it is uncertain whether that was the same person. The Porter obverse die was paired with two Stanton restrike stock dies, 1047 and 1069, but the reverses for circulated varieties are denominated 15, 25, 30, and 50, similar to the marriages for White & Swann of Huntsville, Alabama, and McKay & Lapsley of Nashville, Tennessee. This example is mostly golden-brown but displays deeper magenta toning within the legends. Marks are minor for the designated grade.
