Denomination TOKEN

1781 TOKEN North American Token, Breen-1144, W-13980, R.2, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 360?. A backdated token issue most likely from the period of the War of 1812 or later, and probably struck in Ireland though its use of NORTH AMERICA has ensured its collectability here for well over a century. This is a well-circulated example, but one that retains most of its design elements and all of its charm, with generally even coloration in addition. Listed on page 75 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
