Choice AU 1879 Thomas Hobron One Real Token

1879 12.5C T. Hobron AU55 NGC. Medcalf-Russell 2TE-8. The copper "one real" railroad tokens from Wailuku Plantation were redeemable at Thomas Hobron's general store in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii. The Kahului and Wailuku Railroad carried sugar cane to the port of Kahului for export. Today Kahului, host to the Maui airport and a deep-draft harbor, is the largest town on the island of Maui, the site of several shopping centers and home to more than 20,000 inhabitants. This chocolate-brown piece is well-struck through the centers, softly struck at the rims, as typical for the issue, and shows good eye appeal. Listed on page 391 of the 2009 Guide Book. (PCGS# 600515)
