British tokens, Uncertain locality, Thomas Carter, farthing token 1658. 

The attribution of this piece is uncertain. There are issuers by the same name in Colchester or Portsmouth, but these are apparently unrelated. 

Fine or better, weak strike in centres. Extremely rare, apparently the only example to have appeared at auction in the last 25 years.
