    1837 Feuchtwanger Three Cent, XF45
    Eagle on Rock, HT-263

    1837 3C Feuchtwanger Three Cent, Eagle, XF45 NGC. Low-118, HT-263, W-NY-480-65j, R.4. German silver, 25 mm. Short Wreath Ribbons. Dr. Lewis Feuchtwanger struck tokens in his "Feuchtwanger Composition" during both the Hard Times and Civil War eras. He unsuccessfully attempted to convince the U.S. Mint to adopt his alloy for coinage. His 1837 cent tokens are readily available, but his three cent pieces are much scarcer. The two main types are the New York state arms (HT-262) and Eagle on Rock (HT-263). The latter is more elusive. The present HT-263 example shows moderate high-point wear, and is mostly stone-gray with a few russet-brown freckles near the wingtips.
