    1879 12 1/2 Cent T.H. Hobron Token
    MS61, Rare Medcalf 2TE-8 Variant

    1879 12.5C T.H. Hobron, Kahului-Wailuku 12 1/2 Cent Railroad Token, 2/6 Stars, Thin Planchet, MS61 PCGS. Medcalf 2TE-8 Variant. A rare die marriage. Similar to the Medcalf 2TE-8 variety, but both dies differ. For example, the T is repunched above its right base, as is the first H. The reverse stars have long, slender branches. The lower loop of the 8 is slightly open. A pleasing mahogany-brown example with well-struck centers and the usual minor blending of impression on the rims. Listed on page 431 of the 2020 Guide Book. (Variety PCGS# 515877, Base PCGS# 600515)
