    Borderline Uncirculated '1781' North American Token

    1781 TOKEN North American Token AU58 PCGS. Breen-1144. Breen asserts the enigmatic North American token was struck in Dublin during the 1810s, and exported to the United States because of its war-caused chronic shortage of coppers. An unabraded deep brown piece with micro-granular surfaces. Prominent die polish lines on the reverse field confirm a paucity of wear, but the motifs appear circulated, as purposefully made to imply acceptance in commerce. Struck a few degrees off center toward 5 o'clock, but all legends are intact. Listed on page 69 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 3 in 58, 0 finer (4/08).
    From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three. (NGC ID# 2B5H, PCGS# 589)
