The other side is exactly the same...
I have some not at all like this one but in the same general family, the way that maybe horses and giraffes are. Probably from a workers' cooperative of some kind. If it were from a store as a good-for it would say the name of the place.
D for pence. LSD: Pounds, Shillings, Pence. Also rendered as £ / d. L for Libra the slash / a long s as in our Constitution which has "Congrefs" the small s being for finals or seconds. And d from the Latin "denarius" the ancestor of the medieval Germanic "pfennig."
Thank you! I was pretty sure it was from the UK and pretty sure it was a penny, so I’m glad to have confirmation. I found one exactly like it doing an image search, but it didn’t lead to anything. I have a number of tokens / notgeld/ etc., and was guessing that this was related. .Again, the confirmation is much appreciated. I also have some French tokens that were early gaming tokens, and they have only a number or denomination on them, so I had thought that might also be a possibility. I’d love to know more, if anyone has seen one like this... Thanks again!
