    Rare Copper 1796 Myddelton Token Mule
    Copper Company of Upper Canada Reverse
    PR64 Brown

    1796 TOKEN Myddelton Token--Copper Company of Upper Canada Halfpenny Mule PR64 Brown PCGS. Breen-1076, W.-8910, R.7. This is a muling of unrelated token issues. The obverse is the same as the rare and famous Myddelton token, which was struck for a proposed Kentucky settlement. The reverse is a halfpenny token for a Canadian enterprise. The Soho Mint, run by Boulton & Watt, was the maker for both the Myddelton token and the present mule. Robert C. Willey believed they were struck as samples of the Soho Mint's craft. This well struck piece exhibits consistent mahogany-brown toning. Close examination discovers a few minor thin marks, mostly on the left central reverse. Listed on page 73 of the 2009 Guide Book. Population: 3 in 64 Brown, 3 finer (3/09).
    Ex: Denver Signature (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 5012, which realized $16,100. (NGC ID# 2B68, PCGS# 651)
