    Select Thick Planchet London Elephant Token

    (1694) TOKEN London Elephant Token, Thick Planchet MS63 Brown PCGS. No Diagonals. Breen-186. An interesting and enigmatic series, these halfpence are believed to have been struck somewhere between 1672 and 1694. This is the more frequently encountered variant, and the surfaces show attractive brown coloration with a streaky, occasional overlay of darker brown. Well struck, the lower portion of the obverse shows evidence of having been struck from a worn die and there is a prominent carbon spot on the lower portion of the reverse.
    From The San Jose Collection of Colonial Coinage.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2U3A, PCGS# 55)
