Brass. Uniface Diameter 33mm. PROTECTOR LAMP & LIGHTING Co. LTD. ECCLES Obverse Stamped 253 over ??9 NN The image here is an unretouched photo of the actual token offered for sale.
Protector Lamp's Mining Flame Safety Lamps have been in constant use since 1873. The company is still active. The checks / tokens seem to be rather rarer than the lamps. They also make the Olympic Torch Relay Lamps which have carried the flame for most Olympic and other torch relays over the last 30 years. Similar ticket/checks seen offered on e-bay for £20 or more.
We have in the past sold a similar check with a diameter of 31mm. We believe that the check offered above may be rather older.
