London (1311A), Hammon's Key, John Sell at the Hen and Chickins, 1659
17th century token
City of London
John Sell at the Hen and Chickins, 1659
Dickinson 1311A, Norweb 7066.
Very fine, with some patchy toning and on a slightly misshapen flan, but with what appears to be considerable original lustre, which is highly unusual. Extremely rare in any condition.
The size of the token would suggest a halfpenny, but the date appears to be too early for that.
