Civil War Sutler token Schenkman IN-16-5Ba (formerly IN D-5Ba) R9- (more likely R8) NGC MS64 10% Bright. Sutlers Check 16' Ind. Vol. 5 Cts. In Goods John Stanton Stamp & Brand Cutter Cincinnati. Rare Sutler and even rarer variety. From the Steve Tanenbaum, Byron Hoke and Henry Chapman collections. This is the obverse plate specimen in the new second edition of the Sutler token book. Both the Tanenbaum and Schenkman Plate are noted on NGC's holder. We sold a raw VF example for $900 in our July 2014 catalog auction and this very token brought $1,950 on eBay in October 2017. We were fortunate enough to buy the Civil War Sutler token and cardboard scrip collection of the late Steve Tanenbaum. He was the consummate collector and formed by far the finest and most complete collection of these items. He never hesitated to upgrade each piece from the countless number of sutlers he handled as THE dealer in this series for over 20 years. As a result most of his examples are the finest known, many by a considerable margin.
