Quite an attractive token made by Lutwyche and Dixon. The obverse showing the beautiful south porch of the parish church St. Michael’s. This can still be seen today and is a popular attraction in the town of Beccles. The reverse show the old stone 3 arch bridge in Beccles, which was replaced by an iron bridge in 1881, which still stands today. The F S U, is thought to stand for ‘Facta Societatis Usu’, or ‘Made for the use of Society’.
