1794 Franklin Press Token. Plain Edge. Choice About Uncirculated.
This lovely coin is struck from the early state of the dies which allows the reverse legends to be more sharply struck up and shown in greater detail than typically seen. One interesting small planchet edge irregularity or clip at 5:30. The chestnut surfaces are glossy and lustrous with a natural satiny appearance. A premium quality example of this major and popular colonial type displaying Benjamin Franklin's Philadelphia press. Ex: Early American Numismatics Mail Bid Sale, Dec. 11, 1993, Lot 76 with its insert tag.
