    Description

    (C. 1861-65) Aaron White Satirical Dollar, HK-829, MS64 Red and Brown NGC. Copper. Marking the financial hard times of 1837 and 1857, this satirical piece recommends to never keep a paper dollar until tomorrow, alluding to the private bank issues of paper money that often became worthless. This piece has rich orange and violet mint color on the prooflike obverse and blue-green patina on the satiny brown reverse.
    From The Rev. Dr. James G. K. McClure Collection.
