Hard Times Tokens

Issued during the economically difficult period of 1832 - 1844, these pieces carried a satirical or political theme and circulated as large cents. They are collected by type and variety. The standard reference works on them are Lyman H. Low's "Hard Times Tokens" and "Standard Catalog of United States Tokens, 1700 - 1900" by Russel Rulau.
