    Description

    Lincoln "Free Homes for Free Men" Token, 1860. King-48, Sullivan-AL-1860-51. Brass, 27.3 mm. Dies by Robert Lovett. An unusually nice example of this issue, with traces of original brilliance observed in the fields, especially so on the reverse. Slight rub on the highpoints keeps this piece at the AU level. Obverse: ABM: LINCOLN, REP. CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT, right facing bust of Lincoln with date below bust. R.L. PHILA under truncation. Reverse: PROTECTION TO AMERICAN INDUSTRY around, 32 stars encircling a wreath of corn with FREE HOMES FOR FREE MEN in the center. A wonderful representative of King-48.
