An interesting crown 1822 love token

Recommended Posts

I just received my last addition to my British coins. It's a 1822 crown TERTIO, hanged and engraved over king's neck "Hannah Walker, Rottington". The very interesting part is that a simple google search saw me out to the genealogy page of the Walkers from Rottington. Only two rows about Hannah Walker (born in 1805 died unmarried after 1891), but anyway an amazing link between a real coin and a real person 180 years ago...

Here's the coin (the picture from ebay auction- the coin looks better in hand):

What an interesting story and coin. I didn't even know about love tokens until I started hanging around this forum. I can understand why people like collecting them. They have back stories that spark the imagination.
