17th century token
City of London

Obv: THO: FVTTER AT YE ROSE = HIS / HALFE / PENY
Rev: TAVERNE IN LIME STREETE = Rose
BW -, Norweb 7241.
Near Fine and exceedingly rare - probably only the second known specimen. The other, in a similar state of preservation and formerly in the Norweb Collection, is now in the British Museum.
There are very few known types of tokens from Lime Street, and all of them are rare. This may be because it was a prosperous area, and the local merchants would have had little need to issue small change.
