These half penny tokens were (seated Vulcan design) struck by J.G. Hancock Sr.(?) Authentic John Wilkinson tokens feature one of three types, this Vulcan type, a ship image that is supposed to be a barge, and the Forge scene with worker with forge and hammer. All authentic pieces have the following edge inscription. Misspellings of Wilkinson (Wilkison, Wilkeson) are contemporary counterfeits, as are the mules and other reverse themes. See at least one of those elsewhere in the Museum. This is an authentic example
The edge inscription is: " WILLEY SNEDSHILL BERSHAM BRADLEY". Dia. ~30m; 12.50 gm; cleaned VF, retoning.

This is another classic design 1/2d. from Warwickshire.I have one with John Wilkinson's name spelt as 'IOHN WILKISON',which indicates that the one I have is a historically interesting contemporary forgery,which was also used as currency as well.
