This token is listed in Eimer, British Commemorative Medals and Their Values as E.650 and in Hawkins, Medallic Illustrations of the History of Great Britain and Ireland to the death of George II. Vol 2 as MI II, 676/391. I would grade this token About Fine (Sheldon F15) 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.
