CoinQuest thanks ABC Coins and Tokens in Alnwick, UK for the picture of this neat trade token. ABC has it on sale for 45 British pounds, about $75 US dollars. That is a good price. I've seen them on the Internet in worse shape selling for more.
The Birmingham Workhouse for the Overseers of the Poor was located in Lichfield Street, Birmingham. It accommodated 600 paupers and children at its peak.
This token is difficult to find in decent shape. Approximate catalog values run like this:
