    American Plantations Token, VF35
    Very Rare Sideways 4 Variety
    Newman 8-C

    (1688) TOKEN American Plantations 1/24 Part Real, Sidewise 4 VF35 NGC. N. 8-C, W-1175, R.7. Ex: Old New England Collection. The American Plantations tokens were struck in a white metal alloy consisting mostly of tin. The rare Sideways 4 blundered legend varieties (N. 3-C and N. 8-C) were among those regarded as originals struck in 1688. The more available circa-1828 restrikes are from different dies, N. 4-E and N. 5-D. Both the originals and restrikes are invariably granular due to oxidation of the tin surfaces. The present example is deep silver-gray. The high points display moderate wear but all legends are distinct. An edge flaw is noted at 5 o'clock. Listed on page 41 of the 2015 Guide Book.

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