Another example of a coin that some may remember from our inventory page, but this time housed in a fresh NGC holder. A very rare and desirable token made much more collectable being pared with the famous witch/hobbies obverse designed by Lovett. This piece, struck in White Metal, shows very reflective surfaces and ample luster for a higher end UNC. There are a few of the normal surface marks and hairlines that are found on all white metal coins of the era, but none do anything to take away from the proof-like surfaces present on this example. One of the most popular of all token designs, whenever we have a Witch design, it tends to sell extremely quickly.

This muling is quite rare; in fact it is the first one we have ever seen in all our years of searching. While rarities are not given in the Rulau book, we feel that there cannot be more than a few known today. The Witch/We All Have Our Hobbies is a design that was chosen to be listed in the David Bowers reference, “The 100 Greatest Tokens and Medals”.
