    1694 Carolina Elephant Token, VG10
    PROPRIETORS, W-12120
    Famous Colonial Rarity

    1694 1/2 P Carolina Elephant Token, PROPRIETORS, VG10 PCGS. CAC. Hodder 2-F, W-12120, R.6. London Elephant tokens, especially W-12040, appear regularly in the marketplace, but Elephant tokens with direct references to the American colonies are seldom seen. The New England variety is uncollectible, and the two Carolina varieties are famous colonial rarities. On the present piece, the central reverse legends are well worn, but all words are at least partly readable, including the PRO and ORS in PROPRIETORS. The O in ORS is entered over an E, correcting the blundered legend of W-12100. The pachyderm is surprisingly well defined, and no marks are of any relevance. Listed on page 49 of the 2017 Guide Book.
