    1861 Confederate Silver Token, Fine Details
    A United South

    1861-Dated "Confederate Half Dime," A United South -- Holed, Damaged -- NGC Details. Fine. Silver, 13 mm. Similar to DeWitt-Sullivan C 1861-2, but from different dies with only 13 stars on the reverse, and likely unique. The token maker, Alfred Oliver Hazard Perry Sehorn was born at Jefferson County, Tennessee about 1818 and died at Murfreesboro, Tennessee on January 25, 1879. The 13 stars on the reverse may have alluded to the 11 Confederate states along with the slave-holding states of Maryland and Delaware. Both sides of this piece exhibit steel-gray fields and pewter-gray devices, with the hole just left of the flag pole. This piece is slightly bent due to field nicks that dished the surface.
    Ex: Americana Sale (Stack's, 1/2010), lot 3781.
