A copper-alloy, 17th century trade token. The token has, on one side, a central motif of an angel with the legend RICHARD•STALLARD around the perimeter.

On the opposite side, the central motif is made up of two letters, R•S, with the legend * OF•BRIGG•1659 around the perimeter.

This is a farthing token of Richard Stallard of the Angel Inn in Brigg, North Lincolnshire.

The Angel in Brigg was an inn during the 17th century and became an important coaching inn during the 18th century. It still stands in the centre of the town and is now the main office for Glanford Town Council.

The token is referenced as no. 47, page 440, under Brigg, in Williamson, "Trade tokens issued in the seventeenth century"
