    PR66 ★ Silver 1796 Myddelton Token

    1796 TOKEN Myddelton Token, Silver PR66 ★ NGC. CAC. Breen-1073. Englishman Philip Parry Price owned a large land holding in Kentucky, which had recently entered the Union in 1792. Myddelton planned to form a farming community there, stocked with English immigrants. He enlisted Matthew Boulton's private Soho Mint to produce pattern tokens in silver and copper. The designs for the token are generally acknowledged as artistically superior, and among the best of the various Early American issues. Myddelton's plans for his Kentucky community went awry when he was jailed in England for his efforts to export skilled workers. A marvelously toned Premium Gem that displays apple-green, caramel-gold, and russet-brown patina. Crisply struck and essentially pristine. Listed on page 73 of the 2009 Guide Book.
    Ex: Boston ANA (Steve Ivy, 8/1982), lot 1472.
