Choice Proof 1796 Silver Myddelton Token

1796 TOKEN Myddelton Token, Silver PR64 PCGS. Ex: Aulick, Garrett. Breen-1073, W-8905, R.6. The rare Myddelton token features perhaps the most exquisitely designed motifs of any early American coin or token. The reverse design, which showed Britannia devastated by the loss of the American colony, was presumably unpopular with British officials. The issuer, a P. P. P. Myddelton, was imprisoned in England in 1796 for enticing the emigration of skilled labor to his Kentucky holdings. The present well struck and nearly spot-free Choice proof has attractively toned in aqua and orange shades. Listed on page 73 of the 2009 Guide Book. Population: 5 in 64, 1 finer (3/09).
Ex: J. Wiley Aulick Collection (George Cogan, 4/1883), T. Harrison Garrett; John Work Garrett; Johns Hopkins University; Garrett Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 10/1980), lot 1527. (NGC ID# 2B67, PCGS# 649)
