KM-Tn9, W-1705 variety, considered to be Rarity-6.

A lovely, eye-appealing and distinctive design unlike anything else in the American colonial series.

Struck for Francis Lovelace, second Governor of New York(e), with the intricate obverse design an allegorical rebus on his name (in the form of Cupid using the lace of love on Psyche), while the reverse bears his family crest and, importantly, what we believe is the earliest appearance of a complete AMERICA on a colonial coin or token.

And this is the finest known specimen by a very considerable margin, displaying this lovely design in its most complete and detailed form, all original, lustrous and with choice golden brass color.
