A choice example of this highly sought after and rare Hard Times token. Nice, even medium brown color with glossy and smooth surfaces. Only a few very small circulation marks and some light hints of rub keep this piece just under UNC level, but still, far superior to most examples that survive today.

This piece is coveted by collectors both for its rarity as well as the risqué obverse design, featuring a nude woman testing the bath water. As such, it has been included in the 100 Greatest Tokens and Medals book, rightly so.

Most survivors are found in F-VF condition with major issues or circulation. Finding another example in this grade could prove to be extremely difficult, even impossible when this piece finds its new home.
