London ( 888), Duck Lane, I.B. at the Black Prince, 1665

£120.00

17th century token

City of London

Duck Lane

I.B. at the Black Prince, 1665

BW 888, Norweb -

Fine to nearly very fine but with patchy toning and some corrosion on the obverse.  Exceedingly rare, as is the device of the Black Prince on a token.

Duck Lane led from West Smithfield to Little Britain.  There was another Duck Lane in Westminster, but as this token does not mention Westminster (unlike BW 891), it seems likely that it was issued in the City of London.
