Half Penny 1815 Token
- Media Type:
- A half-penny coin featuring an eagle on one side and liberty on the other. The Eagle Half Penny Tokens were struck over original 'Samuel Guppy' Tokens from Bristol England. A Boston Merchant Named Nye settled in Phillipsburg U.S.A in 1812 and restruck the 'Guppy' Tokens as the Eagle Half Penny Token During the War of 1812-15. This token dates to 1815 and is a good example of what currency was like during the War of 1812.
