TOKEN

Unique ID: YORYM-5C98E4

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A copper alloy token, issued by George Lamplugh of Beverley. A lot of these tokens were issued by private merchants across the country in the 1660s, presumably reflecting a shortage of official small change. Lamplugh may have run an inn given the inscription 'at the', but the name of the inn is not included in the reverse inscription as would be expected.
