    Lovely 1879 Thomas Hobron Token, MS62 Brown
    Kahului & Wailuku Railroad

    1879 12.5C Thomas Hobron MS62 NGC. Medcalf 2TE-8. Incorrectly described as a 2TE-7 on the holder. This 1879-dated piece represents the start of construction of the initial railroad connection between coastal Kahului and inland Wailuku. Eventually, Thomas Hobron established an extensive railroad system that branched through much of Maui.
    An uncommonly high grade for this workhorse railroad token, the chocolate-brown surfaces are essentially unabraded, and the strike is bold for this high relief, wide rim issue.
