I'm not a specialist in 18th C. English tokens but this one had to be included because it was made by Matthew Boulton at his fully functional steam driven mint at Soho, Birmingham. What's more, among all his token issues, this was known as Matthew Boulton's favorite (R. Doty "The Soho Mint & the Industrializtion fo Money". He was so impressed with the design and execution of this token that he kept a few handy to pass out to those interested in having a token struck. He felt this was the height of his art and minting skills, with the effective 3D perspective, I think you'll agree.
D&H#4 Bishop's Stortford in the county of Hertfordshire. AU+/Unc Bronzed Copper Halfpenny, this example is proof-like. Dated 1795, struck in 1796. Edge reads :"Payable at Bishops Stortford". Only 24,814 were struck, including 36 that were gilt and six struck in silver. Designer was Kuchler, and the pieces commemorated the navigational improvements made on the Stort River. The halfpenny tokens were commissioned by Sir George Jackson, who's name & arms appear. Dalton & Hamer # 4. Engraver: KUCHLER
