|This 1860 F.B. Smith & Hartmann Indian Head white metal merchant token has been graded MS63 by NGC and is encapsulated in one of their newer-style edge-view holders. The token has been attributed as M-NY-819 as indicated on the NGC label. This is a very popular merchant token having an amazingly detailed Indian head design. The token also features a reeded edge and is much thicker than a typical coin or token. The piece has very flashy prooflike fields that show several small marks and a few light hairlines, all of which seem appropriate for the grade and do not distract from the striking Indian design. Although the photos do not fully capture the look, the piece even exhibits some cameo frost on the devices which contrast well with the prooflike fields. Under close inspection, some minor pitting is present on both sides, but is much less apparent in hand than it is in the close up photos provided. A wonderful example of this popular merchant token.
