Low-55, HT-63 variety.

One of our favorite Hard Times Tokens, this bearing an obverse design similar to the Matron Head Large Cent, but with the seemingly bizarro ‘LOCO FOCO’ (nickname for the Democratic Party) on Lady Liberty’s headband.

The reverse legends BENTON EXPERIMENT and MINT DROP reference then Senator Thomas Hart Benton’s staunch advocacy for hard currency.

The piece itself is the nicest one of these we’ve had, lustrous, with choice chocolate brown color, hard, smooth surfaces and looks more like a 63 than a 62 to this author.
