Hard Times Token. Late in 1837 the American Anti-Slavery Society of N.Y. commissioned Gibbs Gardner & Co of Belleville N.J. to strike these tokens as a fund raiser. For other tokens in this 'family' see Liberia. This is a well worn example the last '8' in 1838 nearly invisible, which is typical of 9 out of ten of these (see studies below). I have an excellent example of a full '8' variety here in the Museum at: [ link ]


VIEW & DOWNLOAD Research documents:
There is an extensive study of these Hard Times Tokens and others in our Moneta Library:
HTT Engraver Hulseman: [ link ]
The Kneeling Slave Token - Beerstecher: [ link ]
Abolitionist Tokens & William Garrison - Rachootin: [ link ]


One notable mystery on these is that the minting origins are still unknown. The article speculates on two well known HTT sources and Rulau now states that it was minted by Gibbs Gardner & Co. of Belleville NJ. There is also an article on that mint in the Library at:
Belleville N.J. Mint - Jacobs: [ link ]
