I realized that I haven't been on this page in quite awhile. Missed a lot of great coins. This is one of the recent acquisitions that I am most fond of. One of the first "Conder" tokens. It's in good condition for the type.

I picked this up this week in the NGC CCE World Coins Signature auction. I collect wildman coins and have been looking to pick up one of these for a while. There were actually 4 varieties of this coin that sold in the auction but I think this one has the best appearance.

I have a bunch of these both raw and graded but I just love that you can see so much of the host coin on this one. Krause lists the 1763 with no mint mark as "rare" but I don't think it is.

For your viewing pleasure. Unlikely to see another one like this any time soon. This is the definition of rarity.

Is this the "Bold Fine," or has a third coin been found?

@Just Bob this is VF35, so either is the XF, a very very very bold fine, or a third one (I assume perhaps wrong that is the XF).

So, you own one of either two or three coins that are known to exist. Very, very cool. :golfclap:
