Description: Restrikes and Copies
Blazing & Brilliant Robinson "Granby-Higley" Store Card
(1861) Hartford, Connecticut. Alfred S. Robinson "Granby-Higley" Store Card Token. Kenny Robinson-1. F-210A-1B. Dies by George H. Lovett. NGC graded Token Mint State-63.
This exceptional example is fully brilliant with deep mirror Prooflike surfaces. It has spectacular, blazing natural golden-brass color and looks absolutely gorgeous. It appears to be very conservatively graded. The obverse shows a copy of the 1737 Higley copper and a standing Deer. Obverse: [hand with pointing index finger] "VALVE . ME . AS . YOU . PLEASE [five pointed star] - III". Reverse legend reads: "ALFRED S. ROBINSON - BANKER - NUMISMATIST & NOTARY PUBLIC - DEALER IN - STOCKS, BONDS, NOTES, - LAND WARRANTS - UNCURRENT MONEY - & ALL KINDS OF - AMERICAN & FOREIGN - SPECIE. - HARTFORD, CONN. 1861". Issued in early 1861 iot is one of only 150 made in this medal. Robinson called this storecard the "Granby" copy after the city where the original coppers were produced. This very scarce major type is the finest specimen we have offered.
