1863 Civil War Token, The Flag of Our Union NGC XF40 BN. Here is a lightly circulated 1863 Civil War Token. The surfaces are chocolate brown with a hint of green toning, original and free of abrasion marks. The strike is sharp on the obverse periphery and full on the entire reverse. All of the inscriptions are clearly visible.

The obverse shows the Union flag with a Phrygian cap at its top. It is surrounded by thirteen stars and the inscription THE FLAG OF OUR UNION with the date below. The reverse inscription on the outer ring is IF ANYBODY ATTMEPTS TO TEAR IT DOWN with SHOOT HIM ON THE SPOT on the inner ring. The word DIX for ten is in the center.

Civil War tokens replaced regular coinage that was hoarded during the war. This token is a patriotic piece that was made by a private mint. In 1864 a new law prohibited all private issues such as this one.
