Patriotic Civil War Tokens

During the American Civil War, small change was almost impossible to find in circulation. Out of necessity merchants and other groups had tokens made as substitutes for cent coins. These tokens were issued anonymously with patriotic slogans on them. Patriotic Civil War tokens are collected by type. The standard work on this type of token is "Patriotic Civil War Tokens" by George and Melvin Fuld.
