A nice example of this unofficial farthing. Lightly worn and well detailed. 

O: WILLIAM SHAW MANCHESTER  around STATIONER & PRINTER.

This token is listed in Withers, The Token Book. 2 as W.3551. 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.
