    Sidewise 4 American Plantations Token
    1/24 Part Real, Newman 8-C, AU55

    (1688) TOKEN American Plantations 1/24 Part Real, Sidewise 4 AU55 PCGS. Newman 8-C, W-1175, R.7. The Sidewise 4 reverse was used to produce both the Newman 3-C and 8-C coins, which both he and Breen identify as originals made in the late 17th century. Different die pairs (4-E and 5-D) were used later on to produce the circa-1828 restrikes, which are considerably more available. These tin tokens often show tin pest on the originals, as here, appearing as light, pimply corrosion on both sides. The color is medium to darker gray, with a couple of larger marks appearing like an upside-down L in the obverse field. Population: 1 in 55, 2 finer (both MS60). One of those MS60 pieces, a Newman 8-C, brought $21,850 in our Long Beach Signature Auction (5/2008, lot 1829). Listed on page 39 of the 2010 Guide Book.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# AUB4, PCGS# 50)
