Penny Token

There are several different varieties of this token depending on the graining of the edge and die orientation.  This particular variety had a rusted reverse die. Even the most common one is rare.  Regardless of edge type there are probably not more than a dozen currently known, which probably means two dozen extant.

Also, both the obverse and reverse dies are muled with other dies of this period.  The slogan "TO FACILITATE TRADE" was used to encourage circulation.
