English ’Arms of Evreux’ Jeton https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/tokens-jetons-and-medalets/english-jetons/english-arms-of-evreux-jeton-50724.html Wed, 13 Apr 2016 00:00:00 GMT English jetons English ’Arms of Evreux’ Jeton  
Description: An English ’Arms of Evreux’ jeton (large size, ’Wardrobe Counter’) of the second half of the 14th century.

It has been suggested that this type was issued when Charles II, King of Navarre and Count of Evreux, visited London in 1355 and 1377, but it is equally likely that the design was merely borrowed from a form popular in Normandy.

The central indentation (or piercing) is a characteristic of English jetons of this period. It is believed to have been done to prevent them from being silvered and passed off as coins.

Engraved Coin or Token https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/tokens-jetons-and-medalets/miscellaneous/engraved-coin-or-token-54254.html Thu, 14 Feb 2019 09:00:30 GMT Miscellaneous Engraved Coin or Token  
Description: A manually engraved halfpenny-sized copper token, probably made from a heavily worn coin. The obverse is inscribed with the name 'R Knight' in neat cursive script above the date 1772. The reverse is deeply incised with an uncertain spade-shaped object.

Tokens of this type were possibly made by small traders for use as small change at a time when the official copper coinage had dried up. The uncertain object on the second side is possibly an image of whatever the issuer offered for sale.

17th Century Farthing Token, Sevenoaks, Kent https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/tokens-jetons-and-medalets/17th-century-token-coinage/17th-century-farthing-token-sevenoaks-kent-16003.html Mon, 20 Oct 2008 00:00:00 GMT 17th century token coinage 17th Century Farthing Token, Sevenoaks, Kent  
Description: A (brockage) farthing token dated 1666, issued by Thomas Wickenden of Sevenoaks, Kent. Obverse, 1666 with a rosette above and below and a pellet either side of each rosette. Reverse, a mirrored image of the obverse.

A brockage is a coinage error and is caused by the previous blank (coin) sticking to the die, normally the top, and going unnoticed by the moneyer. The next blank is placed on the bottom die and then the top die is struck to the bottom die, and the end result is a mirrored image of the other side.
