INTRODUCTION TO PART VIII

I

N

the "Universal British Directory," 1790, William Hardwareman. His token is a handsome one.

M. Mather

is

described

as a

The Coaly Tyne series are muled with the dies of those issued by Thomas Spence, of London, previously of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Of the Newcastle " Racing Ticket," there is a specimen struck over a halfpenny of 1799. The North Shields token is a fine specimen, made for sale to Collectors. The Farthings are muled with the dies of others of London. The series of tokens of Davison and Hawksley, of Arnold Works, Nottingham, are of fine design and workmanship. The writer of the "Bazaar Notes" states that the design of the obverse is that of the Golden Fleece in the Garden of the Hesperides; that of the reverse is indicative of freedom and unity. A view of Newstead Abbey is on a penny token of Thomas Gorton, of London, made for sale to Collectors. The tokens of Donald and Co. were payable at Nottingham or Birmingham. The issuer of the Banbury token was a printer who published penny chap-books ; his portrait appears on the obverse, and a representation of the Seal of the town, with the motto as a legend, on the reverse. The portrait of Charles II., and a view of the famous Oak of Boscobel, appear on a rare token, from dies by Westwood, made for sale to Collectors. The Coalbrookdale tokens present a view of the first iron bridge, which was made at the ironworks about a mile further up the valley ; the design on the reverse represents the inclined plane at Ketley, invented by William Reynolds, for conveying iron ore and coals from the level of Oakengates to that of Ketley, an elevation of 66 feet. The Shrewsbury tokens refer to the West of England " Woollen Manufactory."


The Bath series is interesting by reason of the number of local buildings which are illustrated, also by the reference on a token to the debtors in Ilchester Gaol; this was issued by William Gye, who is described as a printer, and Agent to the Debtors in Ilchester Gaol. Bladud, who is said to have founded Bath, also King Alfred, who re-founded it in A.D. 900, and surrounded it with walls and towers, are represented. The tokens of Crewkerne, Dunkirk, and Yeovil have reference to the woollen industry. Richard Wright, of Lichfield, on his Private token, perpetuates the memory of Richard Greene, a local antiquary and collector, and shows on the reverse a view of the ^ e s t l o i c h of the Cathedral. Horton and Co., of Stafford, issued pennies and halfpennies, of handsome design; of the latter one ton were struck. The Private tokens of John Harding, of Tamwortli, have a very fine lettered edge in double lines, on three labels, between which are representations of the implements used in calico printing. Charles Pye does not inform us as to the issuers of the Leek tokens. "Bazaar Notes" suggests that Ford and Philips were probably the issuers.

The writer ot the They were silk

manufacturers. A token bearing the portrait of Dr. Samuel Johnson is one of those made for sale. The Rev. Francis Blick, Vicar and Curate of Tain worth, issued the Private tokens of "Church and Castle"; the former being some distance beyond the castle.

A portrait of the

issuer is in the possession of the writer. The Tipton token is one made for sale.

T. Bevan's token, which advertises his trade,

is a rare one. The Lichfield farthing tokens have on the reverse a reference to an interesting local event taking place on Whit-Monday. S Prentice, of Bungay, made the dies for his halfpenny tokens do duty for striking pennies, by using thicker blanks, and by stating on the edge that such was a Double token. P. Deck, of Bury St. Edmunds, perpetuated the memory of Marquis Cornwallis on a penny token; he also issued some for a halfpenny. The tokens of James Conder, a draper of Ipswich, represent Cardinal Wolsey, also various local buildings of interest.

The pennies were Private tokens ; the halfpennies were or

currency. The token of R. Loder has no statement of currency value; the design being a portrait of Thomas Sckford, and his arms.


We are not informed as to the issuer of the Beccles halfpenny token, on which is a view of the church tower and a bridge ; the latter now replaced with a more modern one. The Military tokens are those of Hoxne and of Blything ; the former, on larger Hans, penny s.ze, but from the halfpenny dies ; the latter, were issued by Sir John Rous, Bart, senior captain of the troop. (See " Bazaar Notes.")

tailed.

Thomas Miller, a bookseller of Bungay, issued 21 Private tokens ; then the die or dies Charles Pye states that a specimen had been sold at £2 12s. 6d.

The dies of the Bungay halfpennies were used for striking a number of blanks, the edge reading of which has no connection with Bungay. Charles Pye has the following statement • _ Mr. I rentice, to make scarce varieties, and puzzle the Collectors, has mixed these dies and striking them with a variety of edges not worth enumerating." An edge-reading may be a feature of importance—as on the token of Henry Biggs of irmingham, of which six only with that edge are k n o w n - o r it may only be, what most odd edge-readings are, viz., a wrong blank that has been used, inadvertently, or specially to make a variety. Collectors are advised to exercise discretion in this matter.

Of Boorman's tokens, of East Grinstead, 5 tons were struck. Three cwts. of tokens were issued by J. Tebay (or Tebays), ironmonger, appraiser, and auctioneer, of Hastings; whether he was owner of the vessel depicted on the token, or not, is uncertain. The tokens of Horsham were made for sale to Collectors. of six different " mules " previously unrecorded.

The " C a t " variety was one

Of the Northiam tokens, John Foller issued 3 cwts., and G. Gilbert, 2 cwts. Charles Pye informs us that the token of G. Bennett, of Rye, was intended as a Private token for the late Mr. Tysson, but he did not approve of it. Thirty only were struck; the obverse die broke. The Winchelsea tokens were by the same issuer as the Brighton Camp H a l f p e n n i e s Richard Maplesden. With the Warwickshire tokens, a series of a most interesting character is commenced. Those of the Birmingham Workhouse; Two Shillings and Sixpence, to One Shilling, and including the Halfpenny token, issued by J. Alston, (Charles Pye states that these were manufactured by Ivempson ; the Rev. W. R. Hay, M.A., has a manuscr.pt note by which he informs us that Ivempson and Nevill were successors to Alston, or Wilmore, Alston and Co. button makers, Bread Street, Newhall Street,) form a fitting series, to be followed by those of the 19th Century. The Penny bearing the monogram of Peter Keinpson was not regarded by Pye, as a currency specimen ; it can only be regarded as of a " Private " character, " for exchange. The political tokens of the Greatheads and the Loggerheads, have reference to local incidents much too lengthy to be entered into now. Thomas Johnson and Isaac Perrins fought a prize fight at Banbury. currency tokens, being more of the nature of medals.

They are not

The work of that artist, John Gregory Hancock, Junr., as shown on the tokens of George Barker and Thomas Welch, is of a most surprising character. Pye records that Hancock s father made an affidavit that they were entirely engraved by Ins son, who wasi born^ 0 n the 24th June, 1791. The Warwickshire Yeomanry are presented to us on private tokens of 1 homas Welch. The presentation of colours to the Birmingham Association on June 4th, 1798, is recorded on a token or medalet. The portrait of John Freeth, " The Birmingham Poet," appears on a Penny token. He kept a tavern in Bell Street, known as Freeth's Cofifee House, where met a social gioup whose portraits appear in the " Memoir" of James Bisset. Benjamin Jacob is recorded as being a chaser, engraver, auctioneer, and appraiser; his token adds the description of ironmonger. The portrait of Joseph Priestley, the scientist, appears on some medals, with a representation on the reverse, of some scientific apparatus. The medal, with the legend, OUR FOOD IS SEDITION, was struck after the Birmingham c Riots and by implication refers to Dr. Priestley, who, however, had no ling cause of the riot, he being out of Birmingham on the 14th of July, 1 * 速f thTlJastile being held at the Royal Hotel to celebrate the second anniversary of the stoimm D ot the lUstile at Paris. A printed circular was published describing the medal.

Three dozen in copper, and six in silver were struck then the reverse die was softened, the boys playing at marbles were added the inscrin t on in the exergue removed, and the date 1801 substituted. In the second hardening of the die" it cracked (see the flaw by the date); six only were struck. Then with the new reverse die— 1 a P en > mk-bottle, and open book—18 impressions were taken. Joseph Farror issued the Warwickshire tokens, 1791. Ten tons in all of which about 4 cwt. were struck in collar. Ihose dated 1792 were made for sale to Collectors. The portrait is almost identical with that on the " Stratford Promissory Halfpenny." Charles Pye records that 1 ton of the Birmingham Halfpennies, 1793, were struck No issuer is recorded; possibly Kempson manufactured them to sell to anyone needing tokens for g currency.

John Clarke, perfumer, of Bull Street, issued 36 Private tokens. Charles Pye says— " Dies broke, many bad." Wyon "was the die-sinker, and Kempson the manufacturer. The design and workmanship are very fine. The specimen bearing the names of Mrs. Eves, Mrs. Pope, and Miss Eves is probably a medalet of reward; they kept a school at the Crescent, Birmingham. Samuel Garbett was a refiner, his place of business being in Steelhouse Lane. Of the tokens of William Hallan, the one with the die flaw on the reverse is the only one •riven bv Charles Pye as for currency; he adds—" There are some infamous counterfeits struck in London for sale." The design of the original is such that it leaves very much to be desired. The one bearing his portrait is much better; the others are " mules.

Henry Hickman was a dealer in sheet, bar, and rod iron, wholesale and retail, Edgbaston Street. Ivempson's Birmingham Buildings, from dies by Wyon, have four varieties of reverses. T„ THE I<jth Century, John Ottley, medallist, engraved new reverse dies which bear his name; om these and Wyon's obverse dies, with the exception of St. John's Chapel, Der.tend, Sir George' Chetwynd had some specimens struck, silver gilt. There are also specimens in copper and white-metal. I n some instances the edge-reading is almost, if not entirely obliterated by the pressure brought on to the dies, which forces the metal tightly against the plain collar; the lettering being indented on the blanks previous to such being " struck."

TToi ^ John Nickson, a friend of Thomas Sharp, provide a portrait of Tnhn ales, who received a considerable amount of property at the time of the dissolution of the k n d w h T w ^ f V l n g , n e l t h ® r . w l f e n o r c h i l d - founded the Free School, and endowed it with land which at the time brought in two hundred marks a year.

The reverse shows s L J s shop and the Head Inn adjoining, but which now occupies the whole site.

The design of some of the reverse dies not being approved of, a few only were struck. A

«i ™ e i j n o l r o f Thomas Sharp appears in a scarce publication, "Coventry n 0 t P U b h s L e d tiU s o m e ?LP years a f t e r death ; the original edition some fifty years previous to 1871, the date of the present one. Only twelve original were printed for private distribution ; obviously they did not contain the

Antiauities " was t i n t e d copies of the " Memoir.'

The Meriden token and " m u l e s " were made for sale to Collectors. J h n

W ° i , W e b b s token, of which only 48 were struck, as one die broke, can only be assienpd to Warwickshire on the authority of Conder; there is a Newton in Lancashire where at t h S time, the woollen trade would probably be more in evidence than in Warwickshire. There is no evidence as to the issuer of the Nuneaton token. Those of Stratford, and the " m u l e s , " were struck for Collectors.


The note as to the arrangement of the Wilkinson tokens indicates the points to be noticed for comparison. It is also advisable, not only in reference to this section, but also when other long series occur, to note where a line, being a continuation of the down-stroke of a certain letter, cuts the central figure. The tokens of Macclesfield, and those of the Parys Mines Co., are notable examples. There are three different books dealing with John Wilkinson, viz., " The Wilkinsons," by John Randall, F.G.S.; " J o h n Wilkinson and the Old Bersham Iron Works, by A N Palmer, and lately published ; " John Wilkinson, Ironmaster, ' by H. W. Dickinson, A . M . I . M E C H . E . , Ulverston, 1 9 1 4 . The interesting incidents connected with this noted man are far too numerous to be entered upon here ; if nothing else, his " iron vessel would alone render him worthy of a niche in the temple of numismatic fame. The Warwickshire Farthings and Half-halfpence call for no comment, being generally of similar design to the Halfpence. There is perhaps one exception, viz., the reverse of the Copper Company s Farthing " May a flowing: trade follow a speedy and honourable peace, 1796." " A consummation devoutly to be wished." Charles Pve includes the Kendal Halfpennies, and incidentally, refers to impressions having been taken on Penny flans. The name of issuer is not stated. There is a degree of similarity between the design of these tokens and those of Chester, Macclesfield and Bungay. Besides these there are two " mules." Lamb, of Bath, had 14 lbs. of the " Wiltshire Yeomanry Cavalry " tokens struck. Ten cwt. of the tokens of J . Baster, of Devizes, were struck. He was a brewer, and as such is described in the Universal British Directory, 1790. The breeches and glove manufactory was probably a later undertaking. At the period, Holt was described as a village with a parish church. Charles Pye only records the first and second varieties; as those from the reverse die after alteration were " muled " with other dies, the probability is that such was a manufacturer s speculation for sale to Collectors ; as also were all those under the Salisbury heading, except the last, on which the Cathedral is represented, of which 5 cwt. were issued by J. and T. Sharpe, grocers. The first of the Worcestershire tokens is referred to by the writer of the " Bazaar Notes as " another of the mysterious class of pieces devised to perplex Collectors. The edge-reading is the common one on the London and Westminster tokens issued by Prattent, for sale to Collectors. Edward Davies was an ironmonger. It is worth noting that these tokens are not included in Charles Pye's work, also that worn specimens do not occur, also that they are rare t e inference is that they were either a kind of Private tokens, or were the product of some ol the London dealers, struck for the same purpose as the Worcester Penny. The Evesham token is a " Private " one issued by T. Thompon, Esq., M.P. for Evesham in 1796. Sixty were struck, three in gold. The reverses of the Dudley Halfpence will be readily recognised as from Spence's dies, and as the same had been used by Skidmore, he probably was responsible for these, as also tor the Kidderminster tokens, and either Skidmore or Spence for the Hagley tokens.

Henry Brownbill was a watch-maker in Briggate; his descendants occupied the shop till towards the end of the 19th century. The Mixed-cloth Hall, erected by voluntary subscription among the clothiers in 1758, is represented oil the token. The first illustrated is an extremely rare variety. The obverse die appears to have developed slight cracks in hardening, the reverse is quite different from any others. The root of each building is not shown tiled. In addition to the varieties of the genuine tokens, there is * " m u l e , " which appears to have been softened before being used, as is evident by the surface of the token. Richard Paley was a tallow chandler in the Calls ; he issued 5 tons of tokens. In the » Leeds Intelligencer," Aug. 29th, 1803, is a notice of sale of property held on lease by Mr. Richard Paley. (By order of his Assignees.) There are three " mules " of this series. Hands was the die-sinker, and also the manufacturer of the " Yorkshire Halfpenny.' The writer of the " B a z a a r Notes" suggests that as the Sheffield Cutlers Company appear o the Averse, possibly the bust on the obverse may have been intended to represent the master cutler at that time. The one showing a blacksmith and strikers at work is poorly designed and executed. Those with four hands conjoined is an improvement. The York tokens do not bear the name -of an issuer, but as Cattle, B ^ ^ r a n d C a t t l e issued medals dated 1796, of the same d e s i g n we may reasonably presume they were tb iesuers. There are four " mules " connected with this series. Ben Hobson, havdwareman, of the Pavement, York, issued tokens3 s t r a A on 'brass flans. They do not bear any indication of value, and are more in the form of a medalet than a tok . James Carlisle issued 200 of each of his tokens.

Although one is designated York

was the manufacturer.

These are divided into three sections—viz., Barge, Forge and Vulcan. Each section will commence with the genuine issue, and follow with the counterfeits and misspelt pieces, instead of describing the pieces as being ribbed or smooth coat, turned down collar, or two or three buttons on coat, which is sometimes very difficult to follow especially if the pieces happen to be worn. The mode of identification will be—with or without period on obv., the position of the period or the R to the waistcoat, the rev. by the position and shape of the figures of date, and not by the flames in the forge. This, with the illustrations, should enable any pieces to be easily identified.
