Colonial 1794 MS 64 BN NGC Plain Edge Franklin Press Token
Nearly Gem. Brown. Well struck. Pleasing surfaces. Attractively toned. The 1794 Franklin Press Token is an example of a token in the series of British-minted pieces known as Conder Tokens after the English Cataloger. Franklin Press Tokens likely never circulated in America. Collectors have included these 1790.s tokens as 'Colonial' because of the reference to the American statesman, Benjamin Franklin. NGC has certified three tokens at this level with a mere one finer.
