    Highlight: who was responsible for many of the other Hard Times Tokens of this period (Lindesmith). The Fulds felt that it was possible that the tokens were struck by the Scoville Manufacturing Co. of Waterbury, Conn., although many — if not all — of Hulseman’s works were struck by Robinson, Jones & Co. of Attleborough, Mass. In 1957 the Fulds described a variety of Low 54 (‘‘Low 54a”), differing in that the obverse design bore a male slave in a similar posture, with the legend AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER? It was unknown prior to 1910, and although the reverse die letter stamps are identical (except that the N is correct), the work is slight- ly cruder and the denticles of the border are different. Only two specimens were known to them at that time, both in worn condition, and one would suspect that

    Highlight: who was responsible for many of the other Hard Times Tokens of this period (Lindesmith). The Fulds felt that it was possible that the tokens were struck by the Scoville Manufacturing Co. of Waterbury, Conn., although many — if not all — of Hulseman’s works were struck by Robinson, Jones & Co. of Attleborough, Mass. In 1957 the Fulds described a variety of Low 54 (‘‘Low 54a”), differing in that the obverse design bore a male slave in a similar posture, with the legend AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER? It was unknown prior to 1910, and although the reverse die letter stamps are identical (except that the N is correct), the work is slight- ly cruder and the denticles of the border are different. Only two specimens were known to them at that time, both in worn condition, and one would suspect that

    Charles McSorley Collection of Nineteenth Century Political Campaign Tokens

    Highlight: Lindesmith in 1969 when he published in the TAMS Journal (February 1969) a listing of the Medals of U.S. Agricultural Associations, Institutes and Societies”, which he gleaned from over 700 auction catalogs from 1861 to 1969. While this list was far from complete and pictured only a few of the medals, it served as a launching point for those interested in the series. The next spur to interest in the series was when TAMS published Robert Julian’s Medals of the U.S. Mint, The First Century. This fine book described a considerable number of the medals in this series which were struck by the U.S. Mint and pictured most. Finally, the TAMS Journal of August, 1989 contained a detailed listing and history of the medals of The American Institute by Andrew Harkness. Harkness’ comprehen- sive

    Highlight: Lindesmith in the February 1969 issue of the TAMS Journal. Here. Lindesmith listed 90 different agricultural medals arranged by state with just the briefest of descriptions. With the exception of the American Institute medals, he did not list any medal that did not have “Agriculture” in its name. Our listing w ill also be organized by state and we will take notice if the medal was present in the Lindesmith listing. Andrew Harkness is the foremost collector of such medals in this county. With a collection of over a thousand pieces, it stands head and shoulders over that of any other private collector or institution. We have asked Andy to set down some thoughts concerning this field from his perspective of forty years as a collector and scholar. Below is his response to our request. r n 1783

The reverse bears an open wreath around an engraved inscription of award: AWARDED TO/ PETER SAXE/ FOR/ BEST COTTONTAIL EWE/1 872. Colorado did not become a state until 1876 and so this medal is one of the few territorial medals in the agricultural and mechanical medal series. The society was formed in 1863 and held its first agricultural fair in 1866. C. Bohm is virtually unknown as a medalist. We found a listing for a Charles Bohm as an artist and photographer in the 1876 Denver Business Directory. (H) 22. BOULDER COUNTY
