    (1694) Elephant Token, MS65 Brown
    GOD PRESERVE LONDON, Thick Planchet
    Hodder 2-B, W-12040

    (1694) 1/2 P London Elephant Token, Thick Planchet, MS65 Brown NGC. Hodder 2-B, W-12040, R.2. This is the common thick planchet variety with the reverse legend GOD PRESERVE LONDON and the sword in the first quadrant of the shield to the upper left. It is a sharply struck and nicely centered example with smooth olive and steel-brown surfaces that retain traces of original red color hidden among the devices on each side. Slight planchet defects are evident at the left and right obverse border, as struck. Although Elephant tokens are not particularly rare in Mint State grades, they are almost never seen in Gem quality. Listed on page 58 of the 2019 Guide Book.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2007), lot 2008, where it brought $8,050.
    From The Kadison Family Collection. (NGC ID# 2U3A, PCGS# 55)
