A. Cattermole rev. Pass brass 25.5mm

This appears in the first edition of Smith; England Unidentified section page 255 as 992J

I found an auction listing describing it as Herdman 245

Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.


A CATTERMOLE rev. PASS brass 25.5mm

This was listed in the first edition of Smith as England unidentified 992J (page 255) I wonder if anything has been found since. ???

Do we know why Smith attributed it to England specifically, and not somewhere else in the UK or the English-speaking world?


Cattermole is quite an unusual surname, wonder how many there are.
Could be a theatre ticket rather than a transport pass as I've not found anything transport related.
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....


4421 Cattermole births registered in England and Wales between 1916 and 2005.

Compare 283 Dawbarns (a common surname in my extended family but virtually all the ones I've found, I'm related to) and 1,805,151 Smiths.

The A. CATTERMOLE / PASS token is indeed listed by Herdman (1932) as number 245 with a milled edge under "Tickets of Unknown Attribution". This piece was recently sold on eBay.


This one looks Cu-Ni, while the others are brassy, but perhaps it's just the picture quality. The holed one is probably cancelled.

I have the nagging feeling I have seen the side with PASS (possibly a different word with the same decorations and font style) before. However, when I get that feeling and I do retrieve what I thought was the same, it usually turns out to be different :(

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