Great Britain Staffordshire Walsall Penny and Halfpenny  1811
Great Britain Staffordshire Walsall Penny and Halfpenny 1811

These tokens were used instead of government-issued money during coin shortages in outlying areas of Britain. Penny and half penny tokens bear the 'Walsall Token' inscription on the back. On the front, some say PAYABLE BY FLETCHER & SHARRATT with a bear, and others say PAYABLE BY JOSEPH PARKER with a Druid. In general, the Druid token is somewhat more valuable than the bear token. Halfpenny tokens are a tad more rare than penny tokens.
