    (1694) London Elephant Token, MS65 Brown
    W-12040, Lustrous with Glimpses of Red
    Finest at PCGS in Brown

    (1694) TOKEN London Elephant Token, Thick Planchet MS65 Brown PCGS. Hodder 2-B, W-12040, R.2. GOD PRESERVE LONDON reverse motif. Dagger vertical in upper left quadrant of shield. Struck in copper on a thick planchet. Elephant tusks close to border. A popular British token on both sides of the Atlantic, although the connection with colonial America is dubious and perhaps limited to the rare Carolina and New England varieties, some of which share the same pachyderm dies.

    This high grade representative boasts a full strike and consistent medium brown toning. Glimpses of mint red linger in design crevices. Marks are absent aside from an inconsequential, wispy contact near the RE in PRESERVE. Listed on page 48 of the 2017 Guide Book. Population: 1 in 65 Brown, 2 in 65 Red and Brown, 1 in 66 Red and Brown (6/16). (NGC ID# 2U3A, PCGS# 55)
