1824 Co. Durham, Gateshead, Copper Boundary Token, W.2695, D&W 302/18

A nice example of this boundary token issued for the 1824 perambulation. Lightly worn and well detailed. I note a minor edge knock on obverse at 9 o’clock.

O: GATESHEAD PARISH * BOUNDARY TOKEN * Shield of arms.
R: PERAMBULATED 27TH MAY 1824, THE REVD. JOHN COLLINSON RECTOR.

This token is listed in Withers, The Token Book 3 as W.2695 and in Davis & Waters, Tickets & Passes of Great Britain & Ireland as D&W 302/18. I would grade this token Very Fine (Sheldon AU50) but I have provided high-resolution close up photos so you can decide on a grade for yourself. 

For uncertified coins I provide a grading opinion using both the UK descriptive system and the Sheldon scale (based on ANA Grading Standards and/or PCGS Photograde) which will be better known to my US customers. I offer a grading opinion as a courtesy, but please examine the high resolution close up photos carefully and decide on a grade for yourself.
