    1796 Half Penny Token, PR64 Brown
    Copper Company of Upper Canada
    Myddelton Token Mule, W-8910

    1796 TOKEN Copper Company of Upper Canada Token PR64 Brown PCGS. W-8910, R.7. The production of this muling, sought-after by both American and Canadian collectors, has long been shrouded in mystery. It is believed the obverse die was cut by Conrad Küchler, who was employed at the Soho Mint from 1790 through 1806, while the reverse was engraved by Noel-Alexandre Ponthon. These tokens were probably made as numismatic samples and were never intended for circulation either in the United States or Canada. This is a glossy proof with smooth mahogany-brown surfaces and razor-sharp detail. Listed on page 79 of the 2020 Guide Book.
