£75.00

17th century token

Holborn (Metropolitan Middlesex)

Hatton Garden

Henry Panton [at the sign of the Fountain]

Halfpenny

1.27g.

BW 1327, Norweb 8067.

Fine with a cracked flan and somewhat mottled tone.  Extremely rare.  The Norweb specimen was donated to the British Museum.

Williamson incorrectly describes the device on the obverse as the Mercers' Arms, no doubt on the basis of an inferior specimen.
