ND 19th Century, London, George Carter, Hatter, Unofficial Farthing Token, W.-

A nice example of this scarce unofficial farthing which is unlisted in Withers. Lightly worn and well detailed. 

O: GEO. / CARTER / THE GREAT / HATTER / 215 & 217 / OLD KENT RD. / LONDON.
R: An inverted top hat sporting a sail and containing four persons each holding an oar.

This token is unlisted in Withers, The Token Book. 2, but is classified as Carter type 2 in Token Corresponding Society Bulletin, Vol.5 No.1 . 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.
