English 1840 token overstruck over...?

Recommended Posts

In my quest of finding overstruck coins, I decided to branch out into other interesting tokens. I got this token dated 1840. I don't really collect British coins, much less tokens therefore clueless about what this could have been.

This is an image of the 1840 token.


When viewed in an angle, there seems to be a date of 1837 (?). As of what it could have looked like originally, I would like to see what it may have been.

Will post bigger photos when I get around to it.

Interesting. The underlying lettering is fairly plain on the reverse but a larger photo would make it more readable. May have been struck over a different token.
