Ireland, ND, Dublin, Trinity Tavern, Twopence Token, Todd 228, Rice 372

A lovely example of this rare octagonal Dublin tavern token, produced by the prolific medallist I C Parkes in the mid 19th century. Lightly worn and well detailed. The mark along top edge on reverse appears on all examples I have seen of this token and appears to be connected with the flan being cut from a strip of blanks. Presented with old collector’s envelope (with fourpence purchase price annotated). 

O: TRINITY TAVERN TRINITY STREET around a harp, the value either side. 
R: I C PARKES DUBLIN within two circles. 

This token is listed in Todd, Neil B, Dublin Tavern Tokens of the Latter Half of the 19th Century as Todd 228 and in Rice, Gerard, Fr. Irish Tavern Tokens as Rice 372. I would grade this token Good Very Fine (Sheldon AU53) 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.
