Great Britain 1797 Gaming Token “The Olden Times”


Metal:Gilt Brass
Obverse:George III Bare headed portrait right
Reverse:Spade shaped arms THE OLDEN TIMES

A so-called imitation spade guinea gaming counter or jeton, made from gilt brass with much gilding remaining. Probably made in the 19th century despite the 1797 date. Much nicer than usually seen.
