    That's not worth a Brass Farthing...lol

    Yes, a very rare snag your side of the pond. These 17th C tokens could only be used in the shop of issue. They were illegal tender, but the Govt turned a blind eye because they couldn't afford to plug the gap in small change.

    For info:

    It's Dorchester in Oxfordshire & not Dorset.

    It shows his trade with 3 Sugar Loaves & is 1660 (not 66)

    As an unpriced token in the book, its states a minimum of £45 for this one.

    Thanks for the additional info. The references I saw listed it as 66..but at this point 1660 or 1666 is still fine with me!!! Haha thanks again.

    Really cool find. That camp is giving up some really interesting stuff. From your post, it doesn't say who dug it - you or Russ - it just says "dug in our camp". I would vote banner but need to know who should get the banner.

    I mainly coin shoot, but I also enjoy relic hunting and shallow ocean hunting.
    Congratz! That is one hellava find! I'm hoping to find a 1700s coin, but am doubtful. I wouldn't even dream of something from the 1600s!
