The tokens apparently must have been issued in the period from 1901, when Henry Eaborn retired, to 1910, when his two sons entered the business and the style was changed to G.G. Honour & Sons.

Founder of the business was Henry Eaborn active, before 1879, at 84 Hatton Garden. In 1879 Henry Eaborn entered in partnership with George Gates Honour under the style Eaborn & Honour moving at 64 Hatton Garden. The partnership lasted until 1901 when Eaborn retired and Honour continued alone as electro plate manufacturer silversmith, nickel and electro plater and gilder. In 1910 his sons George Philip Honour and Herbert Percy Honour entered in the business and the style was changed to G.G. Honour & Sons. In 1912 they participated to the Jewellers' Exhibition and opened a branch in Birmingham (52 Branson Street). After the retirement of G.G. Honour (c.1925) the firm was filed for bankruptcy in 1929
