Token: US Pitt 1766
In 1765, in order to pay for the French and Indian Wars, the British Parliament imposed a system of stamp tariffs on the American colonies. William Pitt, with strong backing in England, took up the colonists' cause and demanded a repeal of the Stamp Act. The work of Pitt and Benjamin Franklin led to its repeal in 1766.

Requester description: 1766 THE OBVERSE-THE RESTORER OF COMMERCE 1766 NO STAMPS THE REVERSE-THANKS TO THE FRIENDS OF LIBERTY AND TRADE THE AMERICA IS AT AN ANGLE UNDER THE SHIP. THE ONLY THING THAT I CAN DIFFERENT ON THE WORD RESTORER IS THE LAST R IN RESTORER ON MY COIN IS A LARGE R AND ON PICTURES OF ONE OF THESE COINS, THE R IS A LITTLE R. I DON'T KNOW IF THAT MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE?
