Sage Historical Tokens - Restrikes

       All of Sage's Historical Tokens are found in metals other than copper,
with reeded and plain edges. The earliest appearance of a brass restrike
was in a sale of January, 1863 and they were still being produced into the 1870's.
The ones listed are those found in Bowers "Numismatics Before the Civil War
1760 - 1860". Although produced in limited numbers, out of print, and difficult to find
this text is essential for anyone collecting this series as well as
anyone collecting the works of George H. Lovett.
