    Undated Union Forever Civil War Token, MS64 Brown
    Extremely Rare Fuld 241A/417Aa in Copper

    Undated Union Forever Civil War Token, Fuld-241A/417Aa, R.10, MS64 Brown NGC. Prior to January 2016 when we received the McClure Collection, just two examples of this die combination were believed to exist. One of those is a copper overstrike that the cataloger understands to carry a high circulated grade of about Extremely Fine. The other is a lead example that is heavily corroded.

    Two additional examples of the die pair appeared in the McClure Collection. This piece is a copper example that is not overstruck, and the other example in the next lot is brass. Accordingly, each of the individual pieces carries the R.10 rating as each is unique. The die pair remains R.9, defined as two to five known.

    This copper example is clearly the finest of those four known examples, retaining traces of original orange mint color on its lustrous olive-brown obverse. The similar olive-brown reverse has wispy blue overtones. Slight peripheral and central weakness is evident due to the rather thin planchet. This lot and the next present a rather extraordinary opportunity for the specialist to obtain the extremely rare 241A/417A die pair.
    From The Rev. Dr. James G. K. McClure Collection.


    Estimate: $4,500 - $9,000.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
