U.S. Civil War Token - Union for Ever 1863      

U.S. Civil War Token 1863.  Worn and uesd condition. Union for Ever 1863 version. On the other side is a man riding horse with sword. Civil War Tokens appeared in the early 1860s because there was severe shortages of U.S. government issued coins.  Regular cents of that era were strongly hoarded, so private individuals started making small copper coins to meet the demands of local  commerce. The government caught up eventually, and Civil War Tokens disappeared after supply caught up. These interesting Civil war token have a nice collector following today and are a nice character item from the U.S. Civil War.
