Art, I'm not quite sure of the reasons for these jetons. Issued in the name of the Receiver General of the Poor, it's made of copper so no value in circulation. Unlike the silver jetons given to the Receiver and his cronies which were made of silver and had monetary worth. It's possible they were given to the poor to exchange for some kind of dole but I'm hoping Ian can give me some pointers on this.


Because I'm fairly promiscuous in my collecting habits, it's likely that I will be trying to get a few more of these; and thus a new collection is born. Again.
