(1680) London Elephant Token Halfpenny. "LON DON". PCGS graded VF-20. Called "very rare" by Breen, this one is nice for the grade, with dark brown toning and decent surfaces. A couple of minor pits can be seen on the obverse, along with some trivial rim ticks. This variety is the famous "Godless" halfpenny, as the usual motto GOD PRESERVE LONDON has been shortened to simply LON DON. The central reverse has traces of undertype, as often seen, from the host coin used to strike these.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 2,000.

Realized $1,840
