Program set on Civil War tokens

SUNBURY – The Susquehanna Civil War Roundtable will feature a program on Civil War tokens at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Degenstein Library, 40 S. Fifth St.

Roundtable member Greg Kline will lead the presentation on the now highly collectible artifacts of the Civil War home front.

The tokens, privately issued coins, were issued by merchants due to wartime hoarding of government coins and were as unique and interesting as the merchants who issued them.

The program is open to the public. For more information, call Greg Kline at 717-571-6877.
