    A nice Civil War token dated 1863. The front looks like and Indianhead penny but the reverse is the most interesting part, "If anybody attempts to tear it down shoot him on the spot". It is also the same size as a penny. The tokens a rather difficult to find but most don't cost all that much to acquire.

      You are right about them not being terribly expensive.....UNLESS...unless you have the one that a collector needs to complete his collection. Then the tables turn in favor of the seller that has it.
