Comments

This is one of three Hard Times Tokens (HT-291, 292 & 293) for the Old Merchants' Exchange.  Their obverses are identical with different reverses. HT-293 is distinguished in having no dash under CENT. HT-291 and HT-292 both have a dash under CENT.  HT-291 has six berries within the wreath and four outside, with two inside berries close together opposite the space between the D & E in DEFENCE.  HT-292 has five berries within and three outside the wreath, with only one inside berry opposite the space between the D & E in DEFENCE.
