The Penny token of C James (No. 92) is a numismatic puzzle!— It is of an advertising character, and C. Pye illustrates it as having a diagonally milled edge, and says—14 About two dozen known to have been struck." " In Collar." No. 31 is undoubtedly struck " in collar," but it is questionable if all the others were. Of the larger specimen, showing a comparatively broad rim, one in the British Museum is in white metal; a specimen in Mr. Hamer's cabinet is in copper. It appears to have been struck from dies which had been partially defaced—probably with a blow from a hammer—as the rim, opposite the defaeed portion on both the obverse and reverse, shows the encircling " rings " to be discontinued, as though the " field " of the dies had been subjected to pressure which had destroyed the circular form, at the point where the defacement took place. The ordinary specimens are somewhat smaller in diameter t h a n the " d e f a c e d " one. These smaller ones, tre generally found to have the inner edge of the rim, on obverse and reverse, finely milled ; this has not been produced by the dies, as every specimen seen, varies. Possibly C .lames intended it to be regarded as a special example of his handicraft. The obverse die for No. 31 shows the same die flaws as appear on No. 32, but in some instances more developed; and as the rim is closer to the legend than is shown on the specimen from defaced dies, the idea is suggested that the dies were produced from matrices, rather t h a n being, as was usual, each engraved by hand. A punch has been seen which was used to " s i n k " or produce the " head " on some of the Anglesey Tokens.

INTRODUCTION TO THE

HALFPENNY SECTION.

T

H E Halfpenny Tokens, as described in this section (Part 5), form a most varied and interesting series, being those of tradesmen chiefly advertising their business, political and satirical Tokens, "mules," made for sale to Collectors, and Private Tokens issued by Collectors, for exchange and as gifts to friends. Of Tokens pertaining to places of amusement, there are those on which appears the figure of the "celebrated ventriloquist" Mr. Joseph Askins ; whose real name was Thomas Haskey; born at Walsall, he lost his leg in the American W a r ; he came to London in 1796. Also those of G. Bayly, T. Hall, the Proprietors of the Lyceum, and Pidcock's Exhibition. Umbrella makers are represented by John Bebbington, of No. 8, City Road. It has been suggested that the bust on the obverse is intended to represent the then Prince of Wales. J. Hancock, of Leather Lane, combined the sale of provincial coins with that of umbrellas. J. and S. Kelly, Patent Whip makers to the Prince of Wales, and the Duke of York, included, among other items of trade, the sale of umbrellas. Medicine dealers are represented by Basil Burchell, who issued such a quantity of advertising tokens, that he was ultimately compelled to put on an edge reading, " T H I S I S NOT A COIN BUT A MEDAL . +

. +

J. Ching stated the price of his wares on his tokens, of which five cwt. were struck, probably for currency. (In a later section will be that of Isaac Swainson.) C. James, who engraved the dies for a number of Tokens, advertises his trade, and uses as a reverse, one of Pidcock's dies. Those of Christopher Ibberson, of the " George and Blue Boar," are of special interest by reason of the rarity of the " small boar " variety. The nineteenth century imitation has a plain edge, in collar; a careful comparison of the illustrations will enable anyone to detect the recent impression.


Charles Pye does not state the issuer of the Mail Coach Halfpenny ; but on one variety are the initials A.F.H—probably those of Anthony Francis Haldimand, Merchant, of No. 51, St. Mary Axe. James Lackington, and his partners Allen & Co. issued, in all, over seven tons of Tokens. Lackington's Memoirs and also Lackington's Confessions are well worth reading. The Newgate Tokens have reference to the fines and imprisonment of Simmons, Winterbotham, Ridgway and Holt. They were tried and convicted—Symonds, for publishing the "Jockey Club," the "Second Part of the Rights of Man," and " Paine's Address to the Addressers " ; Winterbotham, a dissenting minister, for preaching at Plymouth two seditious discourses ; James Ridgway, for the same offence as Symonds ; and Daniel Holt, printer of the Newark Herald, for selling Paine's " Address to the Addressers," and publishing " An Address to the Manufacturers of unrepresented Towns, on a Parliamentary Reform." The Token of Daniel Isaac Eaton refers to his trials for sedition. There is a very rare medal struck to commemorate his acquittal, illustrated and described on page 115. Of Oppenheim's Tokens, Pye states that four cwts. were struck ; if so, it is hard to account for the scarcity. He states that order for Presbury's Tokens was countermanded. Their place of business was No. 9, New Street, Covent Garden. Prattent, along with Denton, published " T h e Virtuoso's Companion." The Tokens, struck at the instance of both, are not included in Pye list, and, being muled with others, may be regarded as " for sale to Collectors" rather than " for currency.'' An interesting series are the Private Tokens, struck for Collectors to present to their friends, and to exchange, for similar specimens, with others. David Alves Rebello, is stated to be the person who first had such struck. A fine representation of the old Hackney Church appears on his, also his initials, which, in a similar style appear on his bookplate. Other issuers of Private Tokens were—Peter Anderson, on whose, appear the Arms of the City of London, also his initials ; some of T. and R. Davidson ; also some of Meymott's, were struck from a scarce variety of die, and in different metals, which precludes their being for anything other than private distribution. Robert Orchard had Tokens from dies by Jacobs, also from those by James; those of the former cannot be regarded as presenting a good portrait. The " Smithfield " variety has net been traced ; the writer of " The Bazaar Notes " has an interesting reference to the subject. It is said to be in white-metal, and that the die, or dies, broke; that Matthew Young bought it from James, the engraver. In a London Newspaper of March 10th, 1802, appeared the advertisement: " To the Amateurs of Coins.—To be disposed of, Robert Orchard's Smithfield Token, unique; the only one ever coined, mentioned in Conder's ' Arrangement of the Provincial Coins.' Letters addressed, post paid, to A. B. No. 47, Davies Street, Berkley-square, with the price that will be given will be attended to." As white-metal is more liable to damage than copper, it may have suffered defacement, and as a consequence, being regarded as of no value, perhaps has been thrown away. His Token having a view of Islington Old Church, and that with the view of the church at Sawbridgeworth, are the best in the series ; the reverse on the latter is a shepherd reclining under a tree, 1790.


Ratley's Token demands more than a passing comment; by Atkins' note in reference to his No. 347, a different reverse is described as compared with that on No. 348. No specimen is known to correctly comply with the description of No. 347 ; one described as such was sold in 1901, but it was found to be only an ordinary specimen, faultily struck. Other specimens, faultily struck, have appeared: in one instance, the reverse die had turned half-way round, showing two shells, dates, etc., the first being partially obliterated in the second striking. Freaks of this kind should not be regarded as die-varieties; by reason of a die slipping, one of Orchard's appears to be from a different obverse die. Many of Skidmore's " m u l e s " are extremely rare; several from the "Not Local" section of Atkins have been placed here, the same dies being used, and the sequence being such as to warrant it. The following pieces have not yet been traced, but are included on the authority of Atkins' work on Tokens, and also from notes that have been supplied by various Collectors :â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nos. 283ft, 401, 425,

289c 317a, 328, 429, 433, 441a, 495, 496,

INTRODUCTION. NOTES O N THE TOKENS OF THIS SECTION

Peter Skidmore, who manufactured tokens for sale to Collectors, is responsible for those with a social and political referenceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;viz., " T h e Free-born Briton of 1796," " T h e French Republican," and the table on which is shown a chained-up knife, fork and empty plate, with the word " U S E L E S S " above. The series of London Churches and Gates are of such interest, that the wonder is they have not been bought up by visitors to the Metropolis as mementos. Those showing die-flaws are rare to very rare. In some instances the " Coventry " edge, or " Milled " edge, is all but obliterated, by being struck in a collar. Thomas Spence issued tokens, the designs being intended to give publicity to the political sentiments which he advocated. " P i g s ' Meat" referred to the penny weekly publication, " P i g s ' Meat; or, Lessons for the Swinish Multitude." There are three volumes. In vol. 3, he writes from Newgate, High Treason Side, Dec. 17, 1794. He was discharged on the 22nd, untried. This is referred to on the token bearing Spence's profile. A Cat, and a Dog, represent Freedom and Liberty, and Gratitude and Servitude. Antagonism to the payment of rents was exemplified by the Indian, and the legend " I F R E N T S I ONCE C O N S E N T TO PAY MY L I B E R T Y I S P A S S E D A W A Y . "

The Beginning of Oppression is shown by a representation of Cain killing Abel. A particularly interesting piece is "Pandora's Breeches." That garment is shown as filled with blazing combustibles. This was suggested by the finding of a pair of old breeches filled with combustibles, alight in a closet under the House of Commons. Beneath, is a snake without head, but the head of Dr. Priestley added; this being in reference to the Birmingham Riots ; with which he had no connection whatever, except that of loss.


A portrait of Lord George Gordon, who died in Newgate, Nov. 1, 1793, appears as an obverse; also another without the legend; this is the original impression, the die being afterwards softened, and the legend added. T h e " Marine Society Boy " represents an institution founded to take stray lads and train them for naval service. A Free-born E n g l i s h m a n of 179G is shown very similar to the one on the Skidmore token. An ass is shown bearing two pairs of panniers; the lower ones being labelled the upper ones "

"RENTS,"

TAX'S."

" British Liberty Displayed " was represented by a landsman being dragged off by the press-gang. A soldier shaking hands with citizens refers to a passage in " Pigs' Meat," vol. 1, page 72, where the Military Governors said, " T h e people are timid, let us menace t h e m ; they only obey force. Soldiers, chastise this insolent rabble! " And the soldiers, grounding their arms, said to their chiefs, " We are also the people." Minerva standsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;with legend,

" T R U T H FOR MY HELM AND J U S T I C E FOR MY S H I E L D . "

A Village in Ruins has the legend

" ONE ONLY MASTER GRASPS T H E WHOLE DOMAIN."

English Slavery is represented by a very fat m a n shown seated at a table dining. French Liberty (being the contrast), a lean man seated on the floor gnawing a bone. The portrait of Daniel Mendoza, a noted pugilist, appears with two men boxing as a reverse; this being, "

FASHIONABLE

AMUSEMENT."

The head of Pitt, and that of Fox, are shown placed conjointly; the former crying, the latter laughing.

"

QUIS R I D E S . "

T h e portrait of Thelwall, also that of J . H o m e Tooke a p p e a r ; they having been tried for High Treason, and acquitted. Spence's address was shown by two lads riding on a turnstile. S u m m e r s ' tokens show on the obverse a representation of what is described as " a wild m a n ' s head, from the land of Jesso."

The issuer kept a museum, or antique s h o p ; he

was also a perfumer. There are two varieties of the reverse die. Isaac Swainson, the Proprietor of Velno's Vegetable Syrup, at 21, Frith Street, Soho, was the issuer of a very artistic token ; but as the name was incorrectly spelt, the order was cancelled. Only twelve impressions in silver and copper were taken.


In a book published by J a m e s Ridgway (of Newgate halfpenny fame), entitled » Royal Recollections on a Tour to Cheltenham, Gloucester, Worcester, and places adjacent, in the year 1788," George III., who is supposed to be the author, writes—" George advised her (Queen Caroline) to send for a box of Velno's Vegetable Syrup. Caroline looked grave and ollended. H e delicately saw her objection, and dexterously placed two holy bishops — t h o s e of Peterborough and Llandafif—between him and his mother, who, he declared recommended it with as much zeal and perseverance as if it were their property." To commemorate the restoration to health of George III., a number of medalets were struck; also some having reference to the Prince Begeut. The following pieces have not yet been traced, but are included on the authority of Atkins work on Tokens, and also from notes that have been supplied by various Collectors : Nos. 538ft, 566a, 714, 714a, 721, 815, 825b, 826,

573, 611, 626a, 721a, 747, 758, 826a, 840, 846, 948a,

628a, 685, 690, 690a, 697, 698a, 707a, 762a, 790, 794c, 801a, 804, 811, 813, 851i, 856, 859, 872b, 894, 923a, 928c, 946a, 946b.

Collectors who have any of these pieces, or meet with them at a later date, will greatly oblige by kindly communicating with us, so t h a t they may be recorded in an Addenda. R. DALTON, PARK

NOTES ON THE TOKENS OF THIS SECTION.

I

N the National Series are those representing the Prince and Princess of Wales, the Prince Regent, and the Duke of York, also a number of " mules," concluding with the King and Queen of France. These and the mules with which they are connected, are from dies used for some of the tokens by Skidmore. In the Political and Social Section are the following :â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The British Commercial Halfpenny. This is a beautiful specimen, and, along with the " P e n n y " and "Quarterpenny," form a very desirable set. An aged, and a youthful clergyman, are represented by the portrait of the Rev. W. Romaine, M.A., and that of W. Cooper aged 20 years. " S i r " Harry Dimsdale, a muffin hawker, succeeded " S i r " Jeffery Dunstan, as mock " Mayor of Garrat." He is depicted on the token as with his muffin basket, and bell. Erskine and Gibbs, John Home Tooke, and Thomas Hardy (the latter was Secretary to the London Corresponding Society) are represented, and reference to the trial, and the verdict of the jury, appears on the tokens. The portrait of Sir Isaac Newton, at one time Master of the Royal Mint, appears on both halfpence and farthings. The sentiments of the Society for the Abolition of Slavery appear 011 a series of tokens, the obverse being of a similar design to that of the seal of the Society. Little need here be stated in reference to the Farthings, they being chiefly miniatures of the Halfpence; yet a collection of the Half-halfpence and Farthings of the 18th Century is one full of interest, and well worth acquiring. James Powell, wine merchant of Monmouth and Abergavenny, issued 1-cwt. for each town.


The Marie Pit token for 3 pence is of penny size, issued as a means of paying the work men. The marie being used for agricultural purposes, has perhaps suggested the concluding portion of the legend. The Lynn token is one made for sale to collectors. The name of the supposed issuer does not appear in the Directory for 1790, neither is there any mention of a corn merchant or factor. It is a very rare specimen. The Norwich section has two having reference to the military. Some of the tradesmen's tokens have the City Arms; others, emblems of the trade of the issuers.

AND

Richard Dinmore and Son, on their tokens show a bottle, with the legend, F E W E R T A X E S — a sentiment which all will be prepared to endorse.

MOKE TRADE

Dunham and Yallop, goldsmiths, had on the upper portion of the door, as shown 011 the tokens, the word TEAS—certainly an unusual combination at the piesent time. Weaving being one of the local trades, John Harvey shows a man at work in a loom, on his tokens. A Private Token—Hardingham, a musician—has on the obverse a view of Norwich Cathedral; the reverse being the bust of Handel. Of these about four dozen were struck, some with lettered edge, some plain. A very rare variety has the reverse from a die on which the hair is some distance from the ear; there are also other distinctive marks; it is this variety which occurs with the " Coventry Buildings." In reference to the token of Boulter's Exhibition, etc., the following appears in the Universal British Directory :— " Another object, well worthy the attention of persons visiting Yarmouth, is the extensive museum of Dr. Boulter. " T h e first room contains a number of valuable pictures, prints; British, Roman, Saxon, and English coins and medals ; books, and curious missals. " The second room is appropriated to natural productions, animal, vegetable, and mineral, including fossil substances of almost every description. " The third room has particularly a collection from the South Seas, brought over by Captain Cook, and other voyagers, consisting of dresses, ornaments, tools, and utensils, the inventions of the natives. The collection is the result of over twenty-five years' assiduous attention, and is now the property of Mr. John Boulter, who continues to make additions. Company is admitted at any hour of the day on paying Is. each." John Boulter was a goldsmith and jeweller; Joseph Boulter, a confectioner.


The following pieces have not yet been traced, but are included on the authority of Atkins' work on Tokens, and also from notes that have been supplied by various Collectors :— MIDDLESEX.—Nos.

958, 996, 9966, 997, 999a, and 1050a.
