Feuchtwanger One Cent Token..This coin is Obverse 5 and reverse G, (Variety 5-G) which carries a #2 rarity.

Called a trial piece, due to the different metal composition for a cent being offered to the US Congress in 1837, to replace the heavy large copper cent.

Congress rejected Dr Lewis Feuchtwangers petition to substitute his "silver composition" for the common copper for the one cent coin.
