Description (1694) TOKEN London Elephant Halfpenny, Thick Planchet AU50 NGC. Hodder 2-B, W-12040, R.2. 237.4 grains. This is the usual variety of Elephant tokens, encountered more often than all others combined. The thick planchet pieces such as the present example, have a weight range of 224 to 254 grains, and the thin planchets hover around 116 grains, according to the data from Walter Breen's Complete Encyclopedia. This pleasing example has a fractured flan with myriad short vertical planchet flaws over the entire obverse surface. The reverse of this olive-brown piece is smooth with a few trivial marks. Ex: A.H. Baldwin & Sons, Ltd.; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,645.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
