    Description

    Uncirculated Sideways 4 American Plantations Token
    One of Two Certified by PCGS, Newman 6-C

    (1688) TOKEN American Plantations 1/24 Part Real, Sidewise 4 MS60 PCGS. Newman 6-C. Breen-81, "very rare." Both Newman and Breen considered the Sideways 4 to be an "original" variety, struck in the late 17th century, although the obverse die was eventually used to coin circa-1828 restrikes (Newman 6-F). PCGS has certified only two examples as the Sideways 4 variety. The other piece, also graded MS60, represents a different die marriage, Newman 3-C.
    The present lot is sharply struck and has slightly granular dove-gray surfaces. Close inspection locates a few gray spots, and the reverse rim at 6 o'clock has a brief flat area. The left obverse field has a solitary faint mark, but there are no other abrasions. An important opportunity for the alert specialist. Listed on page 39 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 60, 0 finer (4/08).
    Ex: David Bruce Collection (Heritage, 1/2002), lot 5031.
    From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.
