    1789 Mott Token, MS62 Brown
    Thin Planchet, Engrailed Edge, Breen-1024

    1789 TOKEN Mott Token, Thin Planchet, Engrailed Edge MS62 Brown PCGS. Breen-1024, Rulau-E-NY-612. The 1789-dated Mott store card token is generally seen with a Plain edge, but other scarcer varieties exist, including a Lettered edge and an Ornamented or Engrailed edge, as here. Thick and thin planchet variations are also known, this being the thin variant. As such, this piece ranks among the rarer Mott token types, which were all likely produced after 1807. Reddish-brown surfaces exhibit a few areas of planchet roughness. The eagle is typically soft and the obverse lettering is drawn to the rims. Listed on page 76 of the 2021 Guide Book.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B5M, PCGS# 606)
