I have included a couple jpegs of this "token"
Mintage is unknown to me as is rarity.

Is there a reference for this type of token? I tried google and eBay etc but it does not come up. Any idea where to look ?

That would be "1792", rather than 1702. Your token is an example of what the Americans call "Conder Tokens".

"The Token Book" by Galata Press is probably the cheapest all-in-one-volume British tokens book. It sadly lacks detail on many 1600s types and many varieties of 1700s types, but it's still better than the little 1970 edition I used to rely on.

I've just joined as I've inherited a very small coin collection and have NO idea where to start...

The second one I looked at is absolutely identical to this item, and I was wondering if you had found anything further?

Generally, where does one start finding out how to identify coins? Several are apparently from Roman times - probably not uncommon - and a few are much older Greek coins, but most worn to the point where you can't read much. A few are more modern 16th century, which are legible, but again most are not in great condition.

Thanks in advance for anyone's help.

Alexol -

There is a version of Dalton & Hamer's Conder token book for free online.

Entitled 'Dalton & Hamer's The Provincial Token Coinage of the 18th Century,' here is a link to an article which may help:
