    Rare 1871 Half Real, MS62
    Wailuku Plantation Token

    1871 6.25C Wailuku Plantation Token MS62 NGC. Medcalf-Russell 2TE-4, but incorrectly attributed on the NGC label. The 1871 half real is by far the rarest of the six Wailuku Plantation token issues. In fact, this is the first specimen we have ever offered since we began maintaining our online auction archives. The "VI" on the reverse actually represents six and a half cents--the denomination of this issue. The state of preservation of the current offering is rarely encountered and we anticipate aggressive bidding when this rare token crosses the auction block. (NGC ID# 2UBM, PCGS# 600506)
