    A very interesting but also highly worn token, likely mid 19th century-- maybe an Industrial Token. A picture of a plough and something else on it. And it says: " * N. S.[?] / PLU___/ PLOUGH L[?]ASHING[(S)] / & SLEIGHS / SHOES / [Pic of plough] / MILL GEARING[(S)] / POTASH KETTLES[(S)] / & CAULDRONS / TROY AIR F[(U)]_____" on one side. On the other: " M_ / [?] / SCREWS / FOR PAPER / [image of some kind of threaded device, likely some kind of screw] / OIL & CIDER / MILLS, & C. / * [Looks like a mini woman-bust] * / TURNING & BOR[?]ING."

    I was told circa-1840s on it.

      On one side a rotating screw press and on the other a plough.
