British tokens, Warwickshire, Birmingham, Thomas Pemberton, ironmonger, halfpenny token. 20 mm, 1.48 g. 

Comparison of this piece with other examples of Norweb 5291 indicates that these tokens were overstruck on an uncertain earlier issue; in particular, the toothed border belongs to the undertype, and letters of the undertype's legend are visible, especially in the obverse legend. 

VF, obverse die flaw in an advanced state, good metal, pierced. Very rare and worthy of further research. 

BW 42; dies as Norweb 5291
