    Anti Tilden 1880 Token
    Sullivan SJT-1876-9 in gilt brass. An interesting anti-Tilden token, issued by a quack medicine company, Drake's Plantation Bitters. The inscription on the reverse indicates that the company started in 1860 with capital of $10, but that Tilden would be going out of business in 1880. The inscription "Tilden's Convention Bitters" refers to the fact that the Democrats failed to renominate their former standard-bearer in 1880. Tilden couldn't care less -- he was one of the richest men in America and lived in a palatial mansion in Gramercy Park. Brilliant Uncirculated. 27 mm. From the Joe Brown Collection.
