Description (1688) TOKEN American Plantation Token -- Corrosion - NGC Details. XF. N. 5-D, W-1160, R.6. 138.8 grains. An example of the Newman 5-D variety, this piece is composed of 98% tin and 2% trace elements. The Newman 5-D combination ranks among the rarer varieties of the series, and the Eric P. Newman Collection includes three different examples. The physical appearance of this piece strongly suggests that it was an original strike from 1688, rather than a 19th century restrike. The obverse is typically recognized by the heavy die crack through and below the letters at the right. On this example, the die crack is much lighter than on the next. Dark and rough gray surfaces have a few heavier corrosion patches on the reverse. The design elements show signs of circulation. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $499.38. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
