Up for bids is a rare coin/ token that was given to employees of Wells Fargo with one year or more of service. Issued to commemorate 50 years from 1852 – 1902. I purchased this item from a 91 year old lady whose father -in- law actually worked for Wells Fargo and was presented this coin. It remains in its original leatherette-covered box with blue velvet and satin lining. Deeply toned silver weighing 26.3 grams and measuring 1 1/2″ in diameter. It is in immaculate condition with exquisite detail. Not being a coin dealer or collector in any way, I cannot call it “mint”, but certainly is , in my opinion, “near mint”. I have seen only an handful of these online , with lesser quality pieces in upwards of $1200.00. Great piece !!
