This token was issued by Sir William Dick of Braid to circulate amongst his culters and saltmakers.--Leahe's "Historical Account of Eye Money," p. 104.

Sir William Dick was Lord Provost of Edinburgh, and a very eminent merchant, with a fortune of upwards of £50,000. Having the means, he did not want the inclination to assist his countrymen, the Covenanters, with large sums of money to defray the necessary expenses of the war; but they failing in their payments, he so far overstrained his credit, that his bills were returned protested, and he was totally ruined. He therefore earnestly applied for relief to the Parliaments of England and Scotland. According to his state of the account, there were due to him from england £36,803; from Scotland, £28,131; in all, £64,934, for the payment of which he had warrants granted on the Chamber of London in 1641; on the English Customs in 1643 and 1644; on the cavaliers' estates in 1646; and on the excise of wine, in Scotland, 1651. It appears by Lord Loudon's, the Chancellor of Scotland, letters to the English House of Commons, and to the Commissioners of London, 1644, that there was a clear balance due to Dick of £34,000 from that nation. Notwithstanding these warrants for repayment, and the application of the Scots to their brethren in England, he had only recovered £1,000 in 1653, after sixteen years' solicitation, during which time he was reduced to so great straits, that he was arrested for some small debts contracted for his necessary subsistence, and, as it seems, died in prison December 19, 1655, aged 75.

This token is of good workmanship, thicker and heavier than the usual seventeenth century-tokens, which it must have preceded by a few years.
