|Here is an amazing example of the 1834 Running Boar Hard Times Token which as been graded MS66RB by NGC. This token is attributed as HT-9 and features a popular design of the running boar on the obverse and Andrew Jackson on the reverse. Though referred to as one of the so-called Hard Times Tokens, this piece is more of a political satire piece referencing President Jackson’s opposition to the Bank of the United States. This is one of the finest known surviving examples of this token. Much of the original red color of the piece remains. The token is well struck, quite lustrous and exhibits prooflike fields on both sides. There are no significant marks and no significant discolorations or spotting. This example is one of three (3) which have been graded MS66RB by NGC with no examples grading higher and no examples in any grade earning an RD color designation. Please note, however, there have been a few examples which graded MS67BN at NGC. A remarkable high-grade example of this popular token.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin
in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of
the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a
better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that
you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to
increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin
in maximum detail.
