    1879 Hawaiian T.H. Hobron Token, XF

    Rare Two-Star Die Variant

    1879 Hawaii Thomas H. Hobron 12 1/2 Cents Token, Two Stars on Both Sides, XF40 PCGS. Medcalf 2TE-9. Similar in design to the less rare Medcalf 2TE-8 railroad token, but each side has only two stars, and the denomination side has only two periods instead of six. The flan is unusually thick. Chocolate-brown high points contrast with deeper russet fields. Portions of the flan texture were not effaced by the strike, as made. Listed on page 410 of the 2014 Guide Book. Population: 3 in 40, 1 finer (12/13). (PCGS# 503522)
