Can you lend me an eye on a 1813 Lower Canada Wellington Cossack One Penny Token?

What am I missing here as this example listed on eBay with a starting price of $29.99 CAD sold for $1,624.00 CAD with 6 bidders placing 18 bids.

    @Sergey74 Yeah that's a higher grade non corroded example on which having sold for $120.00 makes sense.

    It is Charlton # WE-13B, Withers # 1506 with a Rarity of R10. Charlton value is $7500 CAD in XF.

    Compare the ground points in relation the E's of Penny and Token. This piece the ground nearly touches the letters. There is also a tuft of grass behind the last hoof. In the OP photo the tuft has green PVC on it.

    The common variety, WE-13A, Withers 1505, has noticeable gaps between the ground points and letters and without the tuft of grass.

    The AU58 example was a bargain at $120US.

    @1960NYGiants Thank you as although I glanced all over the extended ground details did not stand out to me as being different.
