Description: A copper halfpenny token depicting John Wilkinson and dated 1787. The name 'WILKINSON' is miss-spelled as 'WILKISON', an error that occurs on five varieties of this date and type. All of these are listed under the heading of 'Counterfeits' in Dalton and Hamer's standard work (see References below).

See UKDFD 42986 for an example of the same date with the name spelled correctly.
