This token is listed in Withers, The Token Book 3 as W.2697 and in Davis & Waters, Tickets & Passes of Great Britain & Ireland as D&W 302/22. I would grade this token Extremely Fine (Sheldon AU58) 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.
