Patriotic Civil War Tokens

The difference between a Patriotic Civil War Half Store Card Token and a Civil War Store Card Token is the lack of advertising the owner.  While the item being sold may be obvious, the place of business was left off of the die. These were not made very often and most are very difficult to find having rarities of R8, R9 or R10. But when made, are found muled with a Patriotic Civil War Token as the obverse.
