trader's token of post-medieval date. c.AD 1600-1700. It is from William Moore
of Colchester. Williamson (1889, 218) Essex No. 135, see also Mason (1902,
218) notes that 'the "W,I" on the obverse is probably a merchant-mark,
as there are two lines through the body of the I, and the correct initials of
husband and wife appear on the reverse. The token is very common, and three dies
were used of the same type, but varying in details. William Moore was mayor of
colchester in 1663, 1664, 1670, 1681, and 1694.
