Description

Extremely Rare "Godless" Elephant Token

Undated (1672-94) "Godless" Elephant Token VF 20 PCGS. Breen-186, Peck-500. Well struck with dark chocolate color. There are the normal contact marks one might expect of the grade and the obverse exhibits a few small pinpricks. This "Godless" variety (sometimes called the LON DON variety) is extremely rare in all conditions and seldom surfaces. According to Peck, these enigmatic pieces were produced in England by the Royal African Company and struck from West African copper. This infamous company enjoyed a monopoly of African trade in gold, ivory and slaves until 1697. Only two pieces have been certified in all grades by PCGS. Listed on page 25 of the 1999 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2U3E, PCGS# 67)
