This is an exceptional example of the first issues of British held Gibraltar. These early examples misspell the rock as Gibralter. Later issues changed the denomination to 'Quarto' to better match the Spanish influence of the region.
Robert Keeling was the first merchant to issue tokens in Gibraltar. According to several numismatic authorities Keeling was the owner of a wine house probably in the 'Cooperage district' - wherever that might have been - with a personal address in Governors Lane. The tokens are assumed to have been associated with his wine house.
However, a certain Robert Keeling appears on the 1791 Gibraltar census listed as an ironmonger. His wife's name is given as Eliza and his two children were a newly born Robert and a three year old Catharine.
If this is indeed the merchant in question then Robert arrived in Gibraltar in 1777 from 'N. Britain' as a young man of 20. He is registered as a blacksmith.
