Cleveland & Hendricks Political Love Token.

95.00

Cleveland & Hendricks Political Token on 1875 Liberty Seated Quarter. An attractive well made example.

   In 1884 Grover Cleveland was running for President with his running mate Thomas Hendricks. They won the election, but Thomas Hendricks died after serving only 8 months in office. Grover Cleveland was the 22nd and 24th U.S. President and the only president to serve two non consecutive terms in office.

In the 1800's there wasn't a jewelry store on every corner and it was common for people to use coins as Love Tokens and Mementos of special occasions. Political themed Tokens such as this one are a wonderful part of numismatic history.
