Love Token. “U.S. Detective” on Early Mexico First Republic 8 Reales. Overall VF. About as neat a love token as we can recall in recent memory, and with a possible connection to the U.S.-Mexico border area a century or more ago. The obverse is engraved U.S. / DETECTIVE / L.D.M. CALLISTER in deeply worked Gothic lettering, the rim engraved in a leaf pattern. The reverse is the reverse of a First Republic Mexico 8 reales; perhaps our Mr. L.D.M. Callister worked the border area and this was a gift indicative of such service. That’s the beauty of love tokens – for the most part you can make up your own history, as each is unique!
