    Description

    1863 William R. Cobb, Brighton, MI, Fuld-85B-1a1, R.9, MS64 Red and Brown NGC. William R. Cobb was born in Vermont circa 1814, and relocated to Brighton about 1838, soon afterward opening a dry goods and grocery business. He retired in 1864, and died at Brighton on August 20, 1882. He served local offices, including county clerk at the time this token was issued.
    This Choice Mint State plain edge token has reflective surfaces with fully brilliant orange mint luster on the obverse, and 50% original color on the reverse. As impressive as it is rare.
    Purchased from James Kelly (5/7/1943) for 35 cents.
