UNC. 

Thomas Hall was a taxidermist, curiosity dealer, and also had a large collection of stuffed birds. This token was one of the Mayor of Garratt pieces, featuring Sir Jeffery Dunstan, a wig seller and a comic whose grotesque appearance made him a popular figure on the streets of London. Mr. Hall hired him to travel along with his exhibition of stuffed animals as a huckster at the Bartholomew Fair. Dunstan later died from alcohol in 1797.
