Frechtling Dealers In Dry Goods & Groceries Hamilton, O. 1863 The Prairie Flower Indian head reverse struck in Copper Nickel and believed to be Unique. The late Steve Tanenbaum had an interesting theory on the mintage of Copper Nickel tokens struck by John Stanton. He felt the mintage was just one for the Copper Nickel tokens with the 1069 Prairie Flower reverse and two for those with the 1864 dated 1047 Indian Head reverse. His evidence was that not more than one 1069 and not more than two 1047 in Copper Nickel are currently known. Additionally, he had a single second example of 1069, but it had been overstruck with 1047 meaning that either the manufacturer or purchaser notice the error and had it corrected. So not only is this currently Unique, it likely had a mintage of just one. From the Dave Bowers, Don Schramm and George Fuld collections in one of his special holders.
