British, William III crown, engraved twice as love token. 

The obverse inscription reads: M*H/1794 

The reverse inscription reads: MAY GOD WHO SENDS THE DINNER BLESS THE COOK [.] A.E.C. TO E.B.C. HIS GOOD COOK; the style is suggestive of around 1880. 

Both inscriptions well preserved, the first somewhat worn, attractively toned. It is likely that the coin was a family heirloom to A.E.C. who had it engraved as a love token, presumably to his wife.
