This piece which is struck from 2 similar but not identical dies with One Cent in a wreath is not believed to be a Mint product.

Not much is known about this design but it is believed related to the hard times tokens of the late 1830s to early 1840s and is possibly struck in Feuchtwanger's metal (German silver).

Fewer than a half dozen are believed to exist.
