    V. 18th Century Genuine Trade Tokens in Copper
    Lanarkshire
    ST257 Glasgow, halfpenny. Town arms. R. River god. D. & H. 2-5 (some mules, some possibly fraudulent copies) 75p

    2. Glasgow, Shearer's. G.T.T. There were several tons of it struck from the dies by Droz and manufactured at the Soho factory. I think Hamer is in error in saying the dies are by Dixon, as I do not think he worked at the Soho mint.
    3 to 5. Glasgow. These appear to be fraudulent copies made to pass off as the tokens.
    6 to 9. Glasgow. Mules probably made by Lutwyche, so perhaps No. 1 and Nos 3 to 5 were also made by him.
    It is a remarkable issue as there appears to be only one genuine die, No. 2: three forgeries and four mules. See the printed note on D. & H. pages iii and iv.
