17th-Century Farthing Trade Tokens

The tokens of this county are halfpennies and farthings, which are dated from 1651 to 1671; there are no town pieces. Twenty-six of them are engraved in Nichol's "History of Leicestershire" (vol. iv., pl. xxxiii., page 428); thirty-eight are illustrated (on page 124) in Throsby's "History and Antiquities of Leicester" (1791), and two dozen in a pamphlet published by the Leicestershire Architectural and Archaeological Society of a paper read in 1857 by Mr. Thos. North on the "Tradesmen's Tokens issued in Leicestershire in the Seventeenth Century."
