(1792-1794) CENT Kentucky Token, Plain Edge, Breen-1155, W-8800, R.1, MS62 Brown NGC. Die alignment: 180?. An attractive piece with chestnut-brown surfaces and an especially nice reverse bearing the "Starry Pyramid" (as Breen called it) featuring Kentucky at the topmost of the states. These belong to the English Conder token series, but their American connection is strong not only because of their design, but because they are known to have circulated extensively in the U.S. Listed on page 77 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
