Description (1688) TOKEN American Plantation Token AU53 NGC. N. 5-D, W-1160, R.6. 149.0 grains. Metallic analysis of this example of the Newman 5-D variety shows 98% tin and 2% trace elements. The composition and appearance of this piece include characteristics that suggest it is an original strike. However, the strength of the prominent obverse die break leads us to conclude that it is a restrike. Pewter-gray and pale blue surfaces display exceptional luster with little evidence of corrosion on this splendid AU example. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,527.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
