    1880 Wailuku Plantation Token, AU50
    1 Real, M. 2TE-6

    1880 TOKEN Wailuku Plantation 1 Real AU50 PCGS Secure. Medcalf 2TE-6. A splendid chocolate-brown example of this rare Hawaiian merchant token. Unabraded though parallel roller marks (as coined) are evident. Unevenly struck (likely by a local blacksmith) with uncommonly well-defined stars for the variety. The Wailuku Plantation was an early cane sugar farm controlled by American businessmen. One real, a Mexican silver denomination, was roughly equivalent to 12 1/2 cents in U.S. money. Population: 2 in 50, 1 finer (8/13). Listed on page 410 of the 2014 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2UBN, PCGS# 600512)

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
