    1837 Low-49, HT-73 Half Cent Token, MS64 Brown
    The Only Hard Times Half Cent Token

    1837 Half Cent Token, Low-49, HT-73, W. 11-710a, R.1, MS64 Brown NGC. Our EAC grade MS60. The 1837 half cent tokens did not originate at the Philadelphia Mint. They are identified as products of dies engraved by Edward Hulseman, and were struck at the private Scovill Mint of Waterbury, Connecticut. These pieces are often collected as part of the half cent series for two important reasons: 1. The U.S. Mint did not produce any half cents dated 1837. 2. This is the only Hard Times token that carries a half cent denomination. Lustrous chocolate-brown surfaces display faint emerald overtones.
    Ex: F.C.C. Boyd; Walter Breen Collection; Jon Hanson (9/23/1967); Donald G. Partrick.
