1787 TOKEN Auctori Plebis Token, Breen-1147, W-8770, R.3, AU50 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. An attractive example of these intriguing pieces. The obverse design and the legends on both sides so closely resemble Connecticut coppers that they would seem certain to be American were it not firmly established that they belong to the English Conder token series. Caramel-brown coloring predominates, with only a bit of roughness to the reverse legends. The obverse bust is weakly struck, as always. Listed on page 76 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
