 Up for bidding is an encased 3¢ postage stamp, used in the 1862-63 Civil War era, advertising "Ayers Cathartic Pills".

Description: The token is made from brass, mica and a stamp, and measures about 24mm in diameter
. It is the long arrows variety.

J. Gault patented his "New Metallic Currency" in August 1862, during the coin shortage in the midst of the Civil War. About a year later, use had declined, and by the end of the war, Gault's encased stamps were no longer used as currency in any significant number.

: Good condition. Please examine the photographs for further details and qualities.

Thanks for looking!
