    1879 T. Hobron Hawaii Token AU53

    1879 12.5C T. Hobron 12 1/2 Cents Token AU53 NGC. M. 2TE-8. Incorrectly designated as TE-4Aa by NGC. Captain Thomas H. Hobron struck these tokens for use at his Kahulaui general store and on his Wailuluku railroad line. This medium brown example is well struck for the issue despite minor softness on the left-side stars. Unabraded with good centering and minor dark verdigris. Listed on page 376 in the 2007 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2UBZ, PCGS# 10997)
