Obv: The ‘Map of France’ with foot stepping on HONOR, ‘throne’ upside down, FRA-NCE divided, RE/LI/GI/ON cut in pieces, GLORY defaced, FIRE in each corner, murder (daggers) all around and bloodshed all over, 1794 upside down in exergue. Rev: MAY GREAT BRITAIN EVER REMAIN THE REVERSE, radiated within oak wreath. Edge: PAYABLE IN LONDON BRISTOL & LANCASTER.
Uncirculated and fully lustrous. Soft reverse center as usual. Early die state with crack on reverse just starting.
A political token showing the nations of France and England in bitter contrast. The reverse offers a hopeful message of continued peace, surrounded by the protective barrier of oak leaves symbolizing the British navy, and the radiated Star of Bethlehem shining overhead. At least 13 different edges known for this token and the 1016.
