1688 American Plantations Token. Newman 6-F (R.6). XF Details PCGS.
Sharper than usual details with attractive surfaces blemished only by a few affected spots. A quality piece representative of this remarkable coinage that likely saw service within the early American colonies. This variety, Whitman 1165, Newman 6-F, is considered to be R6 with only 17 to 32 examples extant.

The popularity of this coinage has been somewhat dampened over the years because of the existence of numerous restrike examples that were produced in the 19th century from original dies. Coins from the dies that struck this example were used only in 1688, thus confirming the originality of this variety.
