Here's another of the rare types of Liberia/USA American Colonization Society Cent tokens of 1833. This variety was not seen or documented by the pioneering work of Colver and Harley as seen in the SCWC by KM. Two of the four examples are shown here. The American Numismatic Society does have an exquisite example in their collection. Following CH, this variety is characterized by: OBVERSE: 1)'1' in date under tree trunk; 2) small ship; 3) 22 rays; 4)~ 14 curly palm leaves; 5) bush top at water line; 6) Sun disc is outlined. REVERSE: 1) wide spaced 'AD' with a single period between.


Actually both sides exhibit a center planchet punch, although they are very small and not observed in the other specimen of lower condition shown in this museum. This center planchet punch, when visible on the reverse, constitutes the variety described as having 'double periods'. The punch mark on the obverse is seen in the center of the sun disc. Other features noted on this outstanding example is that the sun disc portion between the palm trunk and first ray dissolves from a single strong line into two faint lines. The ray above the bush exhibits a small secondary ray protruding.
A comprehensive study of these marvelous and historical A.C.S. tokens will be presented here when it becomes available.
The minting organization of this token is not definitely known. If you have any information pertaining to this token please contact me or leave a comment below (registrants only).
