Default 1860 presidential coin

Found this in a curb strip in front of a block of houses about to be demolished for a gas station. I wish it was in better condition, but still an awesome find.

That's a killer find. I almost just bought a beautiful ferrotype Lincoln/Hamlin token of the same style.

I saw one just like this on ebay, way better condition for close to $400!
