ANOTHER EARLY FIVE-POINTED STAR ON A U.S. COIN

Regarding Mark Borckardt's earlier question on the earliest appearance of a five-pointed star on any U.S. Federal regular-issue coin, Dick Doty writes:

Isn't there a five-pointed star on the 1714 Gloucester token?

Indeed there is. The images above are from the CoinFacts.com site, originally from Stack's. It's not a regular-issue U.S. coin, but still an interesting example of a five-pointed star. I doubt anyone can identify an earlier one. -Editor
