O  W I
WILLIAM MOORE BAYS W I
R  W M M
MAKER IN COLCHESTER W M M
The W I on the obverse is probably a merchant-mark, as there are two lines through the body of the I, and the correct initials of husband and wife appear on the reverse. The token is very common, and three dies were used of the same type, but varying in details.

William Moore was mayor in 1663, 1664, 1670, 1681, and 1694.
