    Seldom Seen Engrailed Edge Kentucky Token, AU58

    (1792-94) TOKEN Kentucky Token, Engrailed Edge AU58 PCGS. Breen-1162. Kentucky tokens that feature an engrailed edge are significantly rarer than their plain or Lancaster edged counterparts. In his Encyclopedia, Breen writes (1988) that he considers this piece to be "very rare." Testifying to that statement is the fact that our archives show that fewer than a dozen engrailed edge Kentucky tokens have been auctioned by us in nearly 15 years of record-keeping. Pleasing chocolate-brown color covers both sides of the present piece, which shows gleaming, prooflike luster beneath the patina. The surfaces show no visible marks and just a trace of friction. The strike is above average, with exceptional sharpness on OUR CAUSE, which is usually seen weakly struck. This is an excellent opportunity to obtain a wonderful example of a seldom seen Kentucky token. Listed on page 71 of the 2009 Guide Book.
