Description 1787 TOKEN Auctori Plebis Token VG10 NGC. Breen-1149, R.7. Of all the rare bust-right varieties of the Auctori Plebis tokens, Breen-1149 is the only one depicting a small IC in the field below the bust. Breen suggests the letters are an abbreviated signature, possibly that of the same person who so "signed" several medals (1788 to 1789) celebrating the recovery (or temporary remission) of King George III, though the individual's identity is uncertain. This representative is remarkably well-preserved, given the grade, with strong borders and clearly defined legends. The color is a dusky burgundy-brown, with smooth, problem-free underlying surfaces. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,115.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
