Additional InformationThese three tokens were consigned to me as a lot and are not for sale individually.
The lot consists of:
KK203.7: (RARE UNLISTED VARIANT):
1920s Klan token: Obverse features: Imperial Seal of the Ku Klux Klan at center with the word "DUTY" below. The seal has banners scrolled off to the left and right of it stating one of the famous Klan mottos: "Without Fear" and "Without Reproach" left and right respectively. At the center of the seal is the image of the blood tear with the date 1866 (Date of the original Klan's perfection) The blood tear is within a square resting atop the symbol of the Klan's highest honor the hero's cross - The square at center and the thicker edges of the legs of the hero's cross depict the hidden image of 4 Ks (facing North South East and West) meaning: Knights of Ku Klux Klan.
Reverse has a large cross at center with the letters "KIGY" = Klansman I Greet in each quadrant of the cross. Along the top edge is the famous Klan motto: "Non Silba Sed Anthor" = Not For Self But For Others. Along the bottom edge it says: "Honor". This strike variant is evidenced by the use of and correct spelling of the word "Anthar" instead of Anthor, the fact that the two upper legs of the "H" in "HONOR" are bent in and that the same "H" also has a higher crossbar. And lastly because of the block-style lettering used on the "O"s in "HONOR" where they appear flat on their corners (for lack of a better word) versus rounded as an "O" should appear. These minute details which are frequently overlooked by collectors are very important when distinguishing the differences between the multiple strike varities of which this one is quite rare. Aluminum 31mm in diameter.
1920s Klan token. If you have the Ku Klux Klan Token book
by Birdsell it is listed as KK205.1. (Note: there are a variety of
Die strikes for this token and the best way to tell the difference
if you do not have the Journal set that supplements the Birdsell
book is to look at how the rays on the back emenating from the
cross line up against or intersect the letters "G" and "Y" in
the hidden ackonymn KIGY: (See reverse features below).
Obverse features: Imperial Seal of the Ku Klux Klan at center
with the word "DUTY" below. The seal has banners scrolled off to
the left and right of it stating one of the famoust klan mottos:
"Without Fear" and "Without Reproach" left and right
respectively. At the center of the seal is the image of the blood
tear with the date 1866 (Date of the original Klan's
perfection) The blood tear is within a square resting atop the
symbol of the klan's highest honor the hero's cross - The square at
center and the thicker edges of the legs of the hero's cross depict
the hidden image of 4 Ks (facing North South East and
West) meaning: Knights of Ku Klux Klan.
Reverse has a triangle at center with the letters "AKIA" (A
Klansman I Am) inside. The triangle is atop a large rayed cross.
Between the rays the letters "K.I.G.Y." appear in each quadrant of
the cross = Klansman I Greet You. Along the bottom edge it has the
well know klan motto: "One Country, One Flag, One
Language". The way to determine the strike variety is to check the position of the ray in its proximity to "G" and "Y" in the secret KIGY acronymn on the reverse. This is listed as a KK205.1 because the ray barely touches but does not intersect the right side of "G" and then continues on to the right side of "O" in "One" and the ray that intersects "Y" does so through the upper left arm of the "Y". This matters if you are collecting particular strike variants. Aluminum 31mm in diameter.
1915 Stone Mountain Revival Klan token/medal/coin. If
you have the Ku Klux Klan Token book by Birdsell it is listed as
KK201 and represents the very first of the Emperor Colonel William
Joseph Simmons 2nd movement Klan tokens.
Obverse: Features a large eagle perched atop STONE MOUNTAIN (in
Georgia) the site of the 1915 revival of the Ku Klux Klan. Behind
the eagle on its left is a Fiery Cross as was lit during the
revival. Above the eagle is the ackronym: SYMWAO (Spend Your Money
With Americans Only). And below the eagle is the ackronym:
MIAFA (My Interests Are For America).
On its reverse is a bound bundle of sticks which is suppose to represnt the tenets of the Klan which bind all its members. Below the sticks are laid out
in a mysterious pattern (speculation reveals KKKK (Knights of the
Ku Klux Klan) intertwined with Ks facing either direction).
Above and below these images is the famous klan motto:"Non Silba
Sed Anthar" = Not For Self But For Others". There are two
stars one on either side of the images: meaning
unknown. Beautifully designed, slightly worn but still in fabulous
condition: Note the high relief and intricate detail of the eagle
and the bundled sticks. Nickel 31mm -seller believes this token to be from 1915 but I speculate it as being more modern: please see pics and decide for yourself.
Again these are consigned items but feel freee to make an offer and I will take it to the owner.
