There's another shown here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:17th_century_traders_token_(FindID_150508).jpg

From both together, it would appear to read ROBERT GIBSON / OF RILHAM 1667 around the rims of the two sides. But I can't find any such token in the Token Book, and I can't find a place called Rilham.

Kilham in Yorkshire, near Driffield.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

That would be Kilham in East Yorkshire. Unfortunately, a large find of Celtic coins there spoils internet searches.

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

Dear friends, thank you very much for quick and full answer!

Is this token rare?
