In 1831, Robert Kinzie purchased one hundred and two acres in Illinois, paying exactly $127.68 for the swath. Kinzie’s purchase would see two hundred people move onto the land by 1833 when it was organized as the town of Chicago. This 1831 half dime may have been used in the purchase of the land that would become one of the largest cities in the US by the end of the century.
