I reckon it has been cleaned pretty harsh as well becayse around the verd spots there is quite deep pitting. Verd was probably once much worse. I reckon Sap would be in the know with this one.

I have no idea about tokens and don't usually bother with them, But this one I like.
No date on it but it must be old to have Hobart town on it.
Nice design

1860..... first Aussie coins came out in 1910 and 1911 for coppers.
This would have been used as normal currency in its day.
Great bit of history in this
Definite keeper in my opinion
