Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
Original, 1833 Anti-Andrew Jackson / Hard Times Token in the form of a Large Cent Size Penny known as the "I Take The Responsibility" Token. This great, Hard Times Token measures approx. 1 1/8" in diameter and features an image of President Andrew Jackson emerging from a money chest wearing a military uniform and holding a money bag in one hand and a sword in the other on the obverse. The image of Jackson is surrounded by text that reads "I Take The Responsibility". At the center of the reverse is an image of a Jackass with text above that reads “Roman Firmness” and text below that reads “Veto”. Text around the edge of the reverse reads “The Constitution As I Understand It”. This Token has been identified as HT-70.


    The “I The Take Responsibility” token is a satire of President Andrew Jackson and the perceived foolishness of his dissolving of the National Bank. The image on the obverse expresses the idea that it is bad for the President of the United States to control both the treasury and the army. Because Jackson was not a good speaker and poorly educated, he was sometimes portrayed as a jackass (as seen on the reverse) especially when Harvard gave him an honorary degree. “I TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY” is what Jackson said after he put the funds of the Bank of the United States into twenty-five state “pet banks.” His explanation for this was “THE CONSITITUTION AS I UNDERSTAND IT”. “ROMAN FIRMNESS” was a taunt of the day to describe Jackson and his actions. The word “VETO” below the Jackass referred to his veto of the Third Bank of the United States.


    We are not coin or token dealers and do not know how to grade this type of copper token but have included high quality scans of the token which give a very good indication of the condition. The Token appears to be in good condition only with wear to both sides as can be seen in the scans below.


    A rare, original, 1833 Anti-Andrew Jackson copper Hard Times Token and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by eBay and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
