Possible pub token - The Cabin
« on: November 05, 2019, 03:43:50 PM »
This tiny, 19 mm, token bears the makers name as Seace & Son, Exeter, a company who made most of the pub tokens for South Devon circa 1850-1910. I used to be a publican in Exeter and I've seen quite a few of their tokens, but can't ID this one.
The denominator side reads
      J H
THE CABIN
       B

Apple Maps took me straight to the Ebford House Hotel when I asked it for a pub in Exeter called the cabin. There were no further clues, but there was a reference to a pub called "The Cabin" in Google hits, apparently having the same owner as the hotel. Unfortunately, according to Tripadvisor, the hotel is now closed, so no more information. I wonder if the pub could have been inside the hotel?

And just for laughs, I don't think it is this 'un.

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

I've located an Exeter historian, hoping he can help.

The makers name is Seage & Son, Exeter.

His first name was Epaphras, while his son was Frederick.
