Here we have a token to perplex those fans of Exonumia. It is most probably, a late 18th century half penny token but the exact identity will remain open to suggestion. There are the remnants of a ship to one side and a strong suggestion of the seated figure of Brittania, to the other. By way of a parrallel, the Fitzwillam Museum collection of 18th century tokens has a number of very similar tokens dating from the end of the century. (See CM_QC_3951-R(2) at http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/dept/coins/opac/).

Copper alloy trading token issued in 1669.

On both sides the perimeter lettering has large unclear areas. However, on the reverse side ther…
