Patriotic Civil War Tokens

A significant portion of the Civil War trade currency were being manufactured in the city of New York. George Glaubrecht and Emil Sigel generated this simple message to indicate the origin of the token. The distinctive craftmanship of eacbh is portrayed by the tokens below. Especially the Emil Sigel token, where the fields are somewhat plain and the strike is bold and even. George Glaubrecht designed with more flourish, but the letter alignment and position of the wreath are somewhat off.
