Choice Anchorage, Alaska Gold Nugget Token

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Anchorage / Native Virgin / "actual gold nugget" / Gold & Copper / Alaska // Lumber / Dairy / Livestock / Agriculture / Gold / Copper / Coal / Fish / image of sun, "Midnight Sun". Round, copper, 31mm, With original 4mm loop as issued. walter A. Lord Co-Jeweler, AU 55. There is some confusion among collectors about this token. One should understand that they were all struck by the token mfg. co., sans the gold nugget and loop. In 1923, after the Anchorage jeweler, Walter A. Lord Co., received them, he then soldered on the gold nuggets that he acquired from the many local miners. He also added a loop on some, so that the customer had a choice. This was just good business sense. That means these tokens were originally issued in two styles, with the loop and without. The presence of a loop does not necessarily mean that the token has been altered from its original issued form. (from TokenCatalog.com) State: Alaska City: Anchorage Date: FHWAC#: 41915

Complete Set of Alaska ARRC Tokens

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Rare! Complete set of Alaska ARRC tokens from 1935. The set is 1c-$10. Included is the original plexiglas holder. These were only used from 1935-36 when they were collected and destroyed... they are VERY hard to come by these days and a full set is almost unheard of anymore. The Alaska Rural Rehabilitation Corporation (ARRC) was incorporated in 1935 under the laws of the territory of Alaska. It was founded as a non-profit organization under the direction of the Department of Interior and the Federal Emergency Relief Administration to administer the colony of 202 families being relocated from the mid-west. The participants in this relocation were allocated a house, 40 acres of land, necessary tools and equipment. The federal government provided loan money to enable the colonists to set up their farms and get established. ARRC administered those long-term, low-interest loans and became the entity for managing and operating the agricultural project on behalf of the United States Government. Once the federal loans were repaid, accrued interest remained in a revolving fund from which ARRC continued to make loans to farmers and others involved in agricultural pursuits.Today, ARRC continues in its mission to help farmers statewide.

Temple Saloon, Delury & Garcia, Bodie, California Token

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Ultra-rare Bodie token, c.1890. Temple Saloon / Delury & Garcia / Bodie, Cal. // 12 1/2 / Cents. NGC, XF 40. Brass, 25mm. Probably the finest known graded. Only known saloon token from this famous Mono County mining camp. George Delury's story is a familiar one for those who tried to strike it rich in California and Nevada. He first tried his luck on the Comstock Lode in the 1870s. There he met Isabella Ward, who would later become his wife in 1888. When Virginia City began its decline, George followed the excitement south and joined his brother John in Bodie in 1882. (John had been working as a butcher in Kilgore's Union Market on Main Street.) George bought the Temple Saloon with Rosalio Garcia in the late 1880s. The Temple burned down in 1892, but they rebuilt it. That same year, Delury was elected Justice of the Peace for the Bodie Township. Delury also served on the Wide Awake Hose Company (Bodie Fire Department). Bella married him in Bodie in 1888 but returned to her home town (Virginia City) to give birth to their two children: Eva in 1889, and Savilla in 1892.

Joseph Brothers Store Card Token (Gold Rush Jeweler) (San Francisco, California)

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Obv.: Joseph Brothers / of Liverpool Eng. / watch makers/ jewelers opticians/ general importers / 149 Montgomery St. / San Francisco, Cal.; rev.: cheapest house/ in California for / good watches /diamonds / jewelry/ silverware cutlery &c. Br., 29mm. The Joseph Brothers were one of the many California Gold Rush jewelers. They are one of only a very few who issued coins or storecards during the 1850Õs. In fact, Joseph Brothers were among a handful of San Francisco merchants who commissioned to have California small denomination gold coined as early as 1852. All are exceedingly rare. This storecard was made in the late 1850Õs, after the firm moved from 175 Clay Street to 149 Montgomery Street. Here, they were located among the coiners and assayers so it is no surprise they issued their own coins for advertising. They did not follow in the footsteps of another famous Gold Rush jeweler, John L. Moffat, whose gold coins and ingots are now legendary. During our pursuit of the finest pioneer minor coinage over the past two years, we were able to acquire three specimens. [FH] State: California City: San Francisco Date: c.1850 FHWAC#: 22208
