    1694 Elephant Token, VF20
    PROPRIETORS, W-12120

    1694 1/2 P Carolina Elephant Token, PROPRIETORS, VF20 PCGS. Hodder 2-F, W-12120, R.6. The GOD PRESERVE LONDON elephant tokens are regularly encountered, but the three varieties of greatest interest to Early American collectors are each formidable rarities. There are only three known examples of Hodder 2-G, the GOD PRESERVE NEW ENGLAND variety. Two GOD PRESERVE CAROLINA varieties exist. The extremely rare Hodder 1-E refers to the LORDS PROPRIETERS. The very rare Hodder 2-F shares the same reverse die but was struck after the second E in PROPRIETERS was overpunched with the letter O. The present piece is the PROPRIETORS variety. The deep brown surfaces are evenly defined with all legends bold. Marks are limited to a few trivial ticks, though the surfaces are lightly to moderately porous. Listed on page 59 of the 2019 Guide Book.
