This post is about a 1866 US 5 Cents Shield Nickel. The US mint director during this time was James Pollock who found that the fractional currency was so unpopular that it was a good idea to produce a 5 cent coin made from nickel. What is very interesting is that previously Pollock wasn’t too keen on using nickel as it wasn’t easy to strike coins in. The front of it displays a shield with wreaths on each side and on the top we find a cross at the top. The top legend says: In God We Trust whose origins are rooted in the American Civil War and increasing religious sentiment at the time. The Secretary of the Treasury of the time who was Salman Chase was contacted by many Americans with their concerns. This prompted Salman Chase to ask for the addition of “In God We Trust” to be added to American money which took life first on the 2 cent coin issued in 1864.
The reverse side of this coin is shown below and has the denomination with 13 stars and “United States of America” appears at the top. This coin was produced in the Philadelphia mint.

This post will highlight a Falkland Islands Half Penny Stamp from King George V Era. This stamp was made sometime between 1911 and 1928. The Falkland Islands became a British Colony in the year 1833 and is today a territory of the United Kingdom. Its name was derived earlier from the naming of a waterway in 1690 when Captain Strong visited the area. Spain had a force on the islands that it removed in the year 1811. A brief war ensued in 1982 between Britain and Argentina over the islands.
This collectible stamp is mint unused and it appears to be fine or better.

Hard times tokens are a collectible I have recently become interested in. Here we have an example of a 1837 Hard Times Token on its front it has a phoenix rising out of fire about which says substitute for shin plasters.
On the phoenix appears the date of NOVR 1837. So this was issued during the panic of 1837 and used as small money because government issued coinage was so scarce. The causes for this I’m aware of stem from a hot bank lending market for western lands and President Andrew Jackson’s administrations attempt to cool it by requiring real estate transactions to be settled in only gold and silver. I guess you might say it culminated on May 10, 1837 when banks in NYC made a decision not to honor commercial paper in full for specie (which was gold and silver). This time period started from in the mid to late 1830s and extended into the early 1840s. It was a difficult period economically in American history and is known as the hard times.
Now have a look at the reverse side:
It has the date of May Tenth 1837 which was the day that NY banks would longer allow commercial paper to be redeemed for gold and silver.
Here we’ll have a look at a 1917 Washington 7 Cents US Stamp #507. It features first US President who warned at the end of his second term about the dangers of partisan politics.
