    1777 Counterfeit - Eyeballed!

    The ground is frozen solid so I went for a walk at a field local to me and eyeballed this Irish evasion token...Gregory III evasion token! Not bad for not having a detector!

    Thanks! I think it is an Atkins 355. Reverse BEL * ONA. My book also has the date as 1777 but it may actually be 1771.

    Here's one of the variety -

    Yeah I was going by list alone. Looks like 1771 for sure, but notice the 1s and 7s appear to be different sizes which seems sort of odd if the same number punch was used. Also note the little interesting out of place G at the bottom. I skimmed through JR's auction but didn't see that mentioned so don't know if it means anything.
