  1. Good Evening Gary, I have just found the Godmanchester Museum site and was interested to read your article regarding tokens. I thought I would contact you regarding a token I found in the village of Yelling. I worked at Church Farm between 1954 and 1969 and as I have an interest in coinage, I always kept a look out for anything when working in the fields. I was fortunate to find coins dating from Roman to Victoria in varying states of decay. The token is from Henry Beck of Godmanchester 1669 and I see now that he is thought to have been a grocer. As I am unable to go out in these difficult times, I am currently re-organising my collection. Kind Regards, Brian Roberts.
