Here's a special token, to me at least. It came from the collection of Chester A. Krause,
of coin catalog publishing fame.

Prior to Chet buying it at auction in 1990, it had been in the Mossin & Marr Families Collection since 1863.

It grades MS-65 Iridesent Brown.  It shows obvious die cracks on its obverse, the side that identifies the merchant issuer.

Yes, based on careful examination of edge and 'rims' I see that clips show at edge 
where indentation has not filled completely by striking.

Partial voids are seen at the rims where dentils were not filled.

These are my opinions.

Great find! I still find it in an ok condition given the fact that it’s so old. I think you hit a jackpot, I looked up a few websites and I found that the coin is worth more than a $100
