    Pleasing Very Fine Elephant Token

    Undated (1694) London Elephant Token VF 20. Thick Planchet (2.7 mm). 227.0 grains. Breen-186. The surfaces are a pleasing medium brown color, and are especially smooth on the obverse with only one small planchet defect to the right of the elephant (planchets of this issue usually do show some defects). One small rim dent is also located at 10 o'clock on the obverse, but doesn't extend as far in as the denticles. Overall, this is an attractive example that is collected for its connection to the much rarer Carolina and New England elephant tokens. (NGC ID# 2U3A, PCGS# 55)
