Nottinghamshire ( 59), Nottingham, Thomas Burrowes


Seventeenth century token



Thomas Burrowes

Obv: THOMAS BVRROWES          =           Burr & Rose

Rev: IN NOTTINGHAM                  =           Castle


BW 59, Norweb 3529.

Nearly Very Fine and better than the Norweb specimens.

The Norweb authors were not convinced by the statement in Preston-Morley & Pegg (1981) that the device above the rose on the obverse is a burr (thus representing the first part of the issuer's name), but on this example it is hard to see that the device could be anything else.
