Tokens of the West Indies

St Eustatius, LOWER TOWN, Herman Gossling, Bitt, 1771, brass, 23mm (Lyall 452; Prid. p.263, fig. 45; Scholten 1432). Very fine


The date 1771 on the Gossling tokens most likely refers to the establishment of the business, as the nature of the tokens suggests a British denominational issue after the capture of St. Eustatius by Rodney in 1781.
