Gloucester token
« on: September 12, 2008, 10:14:15 PM »
A discussion of a highly detailed Sierra Leone token reminded me of this one: an 1811 Gloucester shilling (Davis Gloucester 6). The edifice is without a doubt Gloucester cathedral. I found a picture in Wikipedia of the same angle in 1895. Note how the extreme left has changed ...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Peter,
  That is a very nice coin you have posted up there,along with the postcard.

One day,I will be able to scan & post up my tokens,including a mysterious Welsh silver 1/-,which I reckon is from Myrthyr Tydvil that I bought for NZ$2 back in 2000 from a late friend of mine (who I still miss!),which could be quite scarce or rare.
