Here is a higher grade yet affordable colonial coin. It has pleasing chocolate brown surfaces.
These tokens were a proposed coinage intended to circulate under the Confederation of the United States of America. This was the country’s governing entity from the time the 13 Colonies ratified the Articles of Confederation in 1781 until they were replaced by the United States Constitution in 1788. These were commissioned by Gouverneur Morris, Assistant Superintendent of Finance the the Confederation and produced at the Birmingham Mint in England.
They were the size of a half penny and were accepted in the States as current; as evidenced by the many worn pieces. This is a wonderful piece of Early United States History from the short period before the adoption of the Constitution.
