It is very doubtful whether the device on the obverse of this token represents a stick of candles; but being unable to say what it really is intended for, we have given the description hitherto adopted. Above each supposed candle, and on the other side of the stick, there appears to be a ring, and on close inspection the five drops [?] are not the shape of candles.
