Civil war token store card type from New York, New York, 630-AQ 1j, NGC MS 63, R-7, struck in nickel?? (see note following) This piece is NGC labeled as 1j, for a piece struck in nickel. Nothing in the appearance of the piece looks like nickel.
It only and totally to me appears to be copper nickel. The reverse shows Lindenmueller, in profile facing the viewer's left, with a long beard. There are stars around the portrait, and the date, 1863, below.
The stars are weakly struck in the 10:00-11:00 o'clock position to the point of disappearing. The obverse shows a large drinking mug in the center of a closed wreath. At the border around these is Gustavus Lindenmueller, New York. Both sides are a nice, lustrous, original copper nickel?? Both sides have the lines/marks going across them planchet preparation, die preparation??
that seem to show up more on some of the off-metal pieces, white metal, brass, copper nickel. The obverse also shows some weakness in strike at the 1:00-3:00 o'clock position, that corresponds to the weak struck area on the reverse.
