Pulled this token up this morning. I’m not sure how well it shows up but it says half a sover’n, some one must have been choked to lose that. Anyone got an idea what it would be worth in today’s money

Great find.
Have you a photo of the other side.
That was a large amount of credit to lose, on one token
Well Done, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Guessing the back is blank? This is what it would have looked like new https://cybercoins.net/collections/toke ... britoka033

I have a local co-op token. They are fun finds. Mine is pressed copper so a half sov one is going to be more substantial

Thanks for the link Oxgirl, I hadn’t realised the reverse was blank I assumed it was scrubbed

Nice find Tony :thumbsup: not something ive found myself, I like a token of any sorts though :thumbsup:

Ive a couple of sets of these from the Woolwich Arsenal Co-Op, that I bought, my family has a lot of history there, anyway the ones ivegot are all made of cheapo zinc or something like that, not sure when there from but I would guess WWII or after
