Hi I have this 1811 birmingham and shieffield 1 penny token
but I can only find the ones that are dated at 1812.
could this coin be one of the first one made before 1812
if this is so, how much is the value of the coin

It appears that The Copper Company made a number of tokens in 1811, so yours may be part of regular group vs. a one-off rarity. BUT, I do not know either way!

Hopefully, someone here has The Token Book by Paul Withers in their library and can give you a definitive answer. (I don't have a copy.)

I don't have an answer to your question but I DO like your token.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

A penny trade token.

Nice condition. It's better grade than the one for 24 so would be figuring a higher value. Am sure another member will have a better idea of value.
