Hard Times Token. Late in 1837 the American Anti-Slavery Society of N.Y. commissioned Gibbs & Gardner of Belleville N.J. to strike these tokens as a fund raiser. This particular example is a very scarce token type that has a fully struck "8" in the date on the reverse. The study below estimates that only about 1/10 of the total number stuck has the full date. This is even scarcer because of the exceptional condition of this example. Note the reversed 'N' in UNITED. For other tokens in this 'family' see Liberia.
A photo of the exceedingly rare "I'm I Not a Man & A Brother token can also be found museum's USA section.


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 ]
