Description (1792-94) TOKEN Kentucky Token, LANCASTER Edge MS65 Brown NGC. Breen-1156, W-8810, R.5. 181.8 grains. Kentucky tokens were produced in quantity, but the vast majority of survivors are of the plain edge variety. The LANCASTER edge variant is among the more plentiful lettered edge varieties, but is nonetheless highly elusive, especially in Mint State. This beautifully preserved, glossy Gem is tied with one other for the finest numerically at NGC (4/14), and displays virtually undisturbed light brown surfaces. The strike is essentially sharp, save for some minor softness on a couple of reverse stars, and the lustrous surfaces deliver a subtle cartwheel effect when turned beneath a light. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,467.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
