The coin in the 2x2 is my coin I have had for quite awhile. The other one I found online that someone was inquiring about also.
It resembles a British farthing token but I have never come across one that looks like this one.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

. Always best to remove coin from 2x2 before taking pics.

An interesting piece to be sure. The image of mercury holding the caduceus seems to be a rough copy of an early 18th Century Daler. Here is a link to that piece so that you can compare:

With that said, I think that your piece might be some sort of tradesman token.

Hi obrienfamily70 and to the forum!

Just to clarify ... are the top two photos your token and the bottom two photos the British farthing that you think that it resembles?

Coaster,
The top two pics are my coin. The bottom two pics are the same kind of coin as mine, just not in a 2x2, so I included them so I didn't have to take mine out of the 2x2.

I think the coins resemble a Colombia farthing token but isn't a match.
