17th century token

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.
