I hate even to suggest it but could it be one of the notorious forgeries of the time or even an imitation?

Either way it's a cool find to be in a box of coins. Would be really cool if it is real. Hope you find out.

It is one of those so called 'Conder tokens'. They were issued in quite large quantities to fulfill the need for small change. THat reverse text probably tells who issued this particular token. I'd guess a person named Huckley from Birmingham is behind this one
Date is probably accurate.

Sorry but Im afraid not or my sovereigns would have gone long ago.They are numerous and only brass.They were not legal tender or small change in any shape or form.
