Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: MODERN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Published Find published

Token or jetton of George III (1787). It was made to imitate a George III half guinea or so-called 'spade guinea', the name being taken from the spade-shaped shield on the reverse. There is a perforation above the bust, and it is likely that this item was used as a gaming piece. See also: NLM-18CC8C, LVPL-423866, IOW-37164D, LANCUM-069173
