Description: An undated farthing token, issued by the Parish of Cley next the Sea, Norfolk. The obverse depicts a cabled anchor. The reverse depicts a horseshoe, points in base.

The authors of SCBI 44 comment that, "It might be better to transpose obv. and rev. and understand the legends as 'Holt Hundred (Cley in) farthing', Cley being the issuing address for the Holt Hundred token".

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.

17th Century Halfpenny Token, Hull, Yorkshire https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/tokens-jetons-and-medalets/17th-century-token-coinage/17th-century-halfpenny-token-hull-yorkshire-49580.html Mon, 26 Oct 2015 00:00:00 GMT 17th century token coinage 17th Century Halfpenny Token, Hull, Yorkshire  
Description: A halfpenny token issued by Walter Brokett, a tanner of Kingston-on-Hull. The obverse depicts a quartered shield of arms. The reverse is inscribed HIS HALF PENY in three lines.

Williamson (see References below) writes several paragraphs on the Brokett family, of which the following extract is part:
Walter Brokett was a tanner in Hull. The Brocketts were an ancient Yorkshire family, settled at Steton in the parish of Bolton Percy. No memorials of the family now remain in the church of that parish; but at the Yorkshire Visitation, in 1584-85, amongst the arms taken out of the church are those of Thomas Brockett, or a cross patonce sable...

Description: A 17th century halfpenny token overstruck on another 17th century halfpenny token, such that the legends are illegible.

On one side the predominant design is a pair of scales, and the underlying design is a shield bearing the arms of the Worshipful Company of Ironmongers: On a chevron between three gads of steel three swivels. The two designs are orientated at 180 degrees to each other.

On the second side the predominant design consists of the initials IB separated by a rose with three blooms. The underlying design is less clear, but seems to be a shield similar to that on the first side, suggesting that the token might have flipped between the dies on the original striking.

The UKDFD is grateful to DiOz for tracing both the original and the overstruck designs:

1. Stourbridge halfpenny token:
Williamson/Dickinson, Worcestershire 98
O. A . STOWERBRIDG . HALF . PENY = The Ironmongers' Arms.
R. FOR . NECESSARY . CHAINGE = The Clothworkers' Arms.

Williamson quoting Boyne in his notes about this token...
"...there is a specimen of this token having the reverse indented, caused by the previously-struck coin not having been removed from the die when the new blank was placed on it. Many examples of this kind are found."

2. Barnet halfpenny token:
Williamson/Dickinson, Hertfordshire 23
O. IOANE . BVLL . IN . BARNETT = A pair of scales.
R. HER . HALFE . PENNY . 1667 = I . B.

17th Century Farthing Token, Bedford https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/tokens-jetons-and-medalets/17th-century-token-coinage/17th-century-farthing-token-bedford-41683.html Sat, 18 May 2013 00:00:00 GMT 17th century token coinage 17th Century Farthing Token, Bedford  
Description: A farthing token dated 1654, issued by John Paulin of Bedford. The obverse has the arms of the Worshipful Company of Grocers: On a shield a chevron between nine cloves. The reverse has the initials of the issuer and his wife.

Although very corroded, the token would appear to be struck from an obverse die with the error IAMN for IOHN, presumably because the die-cutter had the name 'James' in mind when he started. Neither of the obverse dies used to strike the two tokens illustrated in SCBI 31 has this error.
