Undated Bar Silver Token Proof

DLRC #: 1649806 // PCGS #: MiscLotUS

This mid-19th century silver copy of the Bar copper was produced by an unidentified maker. The dies differ from those of the John Adams Bolen copies that were produced in the 1860s. This piece almost certainly dates from the second half of the 19th century, and exhibits workmanship superior to the Bolen pieces. Donald G. Partrick notes on his envelope that only one other example is known from these dies; graded VG, it was in the John J. Ford, Jr. collection. This amazing proof, with delicate blue and iridescent toning, has exceptional eye appeal. - Heritage Auctions
