    1694 Carolina Elephant Token, VF20
    PROPRIETORS Reverse, W-12120

    1694 1/2 P Carolina Elephant Token, PROPRIETORS, VF20 PCGS. CAC. Hodder 2-F, W-12120, R.6. Ex: Steinberg. A single obverse, unlettered with a simple yet striking depiction of an elephant, gives this class of tokens its name. Only one variety, associated with a London shield reverse, is common, while all reverses linked to American colonies are rare. This Carolina token was struck from a corrected reverse that changed the misspelling PROPRIETERS to PROPRIETORS with an "O" stamped over the erroneous "E." This VF20 piece has the broad details of the elephant remaining, though parts of the ear are weak. Medium-brown surfaces are slightly porous but minimally marked with a hint of violet overtone. Listed on page 49 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2013), lot 6202.
