PCGS MS-63 (illustrated above).  Thick Planchet.  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, October 14, 2000, Lot 1020, where it was described as follows: "Struck from an earlier state of the dies than seen on the Thin Planchet variety offered elsewhere in this sale, but there is still plenty of die rust evident in the fields. This example is also quite glossy, with chestnut brown surfaces that show no breaks in the color or luster. A fantastic coin for the collector of quality Colonials. Tied for finest graded at PCGS." - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, April 21, 2001, Lot 1084

PCGS MS-62 (illustrated above).  Thick Planchet.  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, December 9, 2000, Lot 894, where it was described as follows: "1789 Mott Token, Thick Planchet, Plain Edge, PCGS graded Mint State-62.  167.8 grains. Glossy dark brown, with the usual die rust seen on both sides and just a tiny cud on the upper left corner of the clock (this later expands to nearly obliterate the face of the clock). One of the Finest Certified by PCGS. The details on this coin are so extremely sharp, that one can easily read each and every number on the face of the clock! One would be hard pressed to ever be lucky enough to locate a finer, sharper example."
