Thank you coppinpr, you really got me thinking a lot with your interesting reply. You could be right but I still am bordering on token or coin for an event... The trouble is, someone has gone to long lengths to produce the detailed quality of the effigy of the prince, also the milled edges like they have on the old sixpences and halfcrowns. Why gilt these tokens too? Gilting is using a very thin layer of gold so I believe!
The reverse star is interesting and so are the words in capitals GUILD MEMBER T.C. What could the T.C. be?
The coin tokens, as I previously said, were in the front window segment which was probably designed for 3 tokens penny size. They were wrapped in yellowed mag paper that had part of an article about peep machines. You wouldn't have known they were there till I unscrewed the back bit. I have always felt they were something special, probably an original gold award, maybe only done for a while. Someone out there must know???
