1838 Am I Not a Man and a Brother Hard Times Token, Low-54A, HT-82, High R.7, XF40 NGC. Copper. Just four examples of this famous Hard Times token are known. The other three specimens are the John J. Ford, Jr. example also in a major private collection, the Don Miller piece that is now in an advanced Long Island Collection, and the granular example that was recently discovered in Canada.
These tokens are patterned after late 18th century British Conder tokens. A similar token, Low-54, has a kneeling female figure and the inscription "Am I Not a Woman and a Sister"; those tokens are relatively plentiful. The Low-54A rarity is thought to be a pattern issue.
