This Unofficial Farthing Token was issued by John Hayward of 66 Tooley Street in Southwark who was a manufacturer of tobacco & snuff products. There are 2 varieties of this token - with plain & diagonally milled edges. This one has the plain edge. Scarce, undated but 1833 according to Bill McKivor of the CopperCorner.


Surrey; Southwark.

768. O.—"John Hayward Manufacturer of Tobacco & Snuff 66 Tooley Street." R.—" Fancy Snuffs Segars &c." E.—Milled.

769. As 768, smaller and thinner; struck on one of "T . Pryce's" Coins. (See No. 771.)

770. As 768, smaller and thicker


I like the spelling of "cigar" as "segar". From Webster's 1. An alternative spelling for "Cigar": A small roll of tobacco, used for smoking.
