Uncirculated and Choice. Red & Brown with lustre

One of the Mail Coach tokens honoring John Palmer, the originator of mail coaches. The scrunched lettering on the reverse is notable for how it touches the wreath leaves. In fact, the T of ESTABLISHMENT almost goes off the edge! The initials JF belong to an unknown person, but the issuer was probably associated with an inn or booking office that owed a great deal to the Mail Coach and Palmer.
