Undated (ca. 1793-1795) Kentucky Token. W-8810. Rarity-5. Copper. LANCASTER Edge. AU-55 (PCGS). Marbled olive-charcoal and golden-brown patina is a bit bolder on the obverse of this hard, satiny example. Striking detail is sharp apart from the typically seen softness to the top of the scroll on the obverse and a few of the design elements in the center of the reverse. A few speckles of ancient carbon are out of the way near the borders and easily overlooked, the in hand appearance smooth and appealing. Produced in large quantities in England as part of the Conder token series, the Kentucky tokens of the early to mid 1790s derive their popular name from the letter K at the top of the pyramid on the reverse, a reference to Kentucky, which was admitted to the Union as the 15th state on June 1, 1792. Whitman-8810 offered here is a scarce variety, most examples in numismatic hands are Plain Edge pieces of the W-8800 attribution.
