Sally B. writes: Can you tell me anything about a coin dated 1846, on the front is a woman with the word Victoria and the word Regina and on the back is a man, – General Tom Thumb is above the man and 15lb weight is below the man. This may not even be a coin I’m not sure.
You have a very neat, English circus advertising token, pass or ticket (Tom Thumb was a famous Circus performer with the P.T. Barnum Circus and billed as the world’s smallest man). These are very popular among token collectors. Approximate value: $100+.
