The substitution of "n" for "k" on the reverse was probably a phonetic blunder.

This coin was assigned by Mr. Boyne to Stratton, in Wiltshire; but the Cornish Stratton was a more important place. Cann is a common local name; and, moreover, the token has been found in the neighbourhood. A priori, it would be difficult to understand Kilkhampton having a token, while its more important ancient neighbour, Stratton, went without.

The issuer either subsequently removed to Truro, or had an establishment in both places.
