An interesting industrial scene.
This attractive token was most likely struck as a speculative piece for sale to anyone who would use it. There was certainly not an iron works at Sedbury, Gloucs. at this time.
The same reverse die was used for bogus pieces for Burton, Sheffield and several ‘non-local pieces’.
This is graded to strict British and European standards.
Depictions of coins and books are images of the actual item offered for sale.
