~(Item #T-1)Here we have a token of some kind with the value of 2 scruples stamped on it, can anybody identify this item please?
Solved, By Andy Redlon of the USA
this is a pharmaceutical measure of weight.
Apothecaries used specialized weights and measures for the tiny amounts of material employed in medicine formulations. Apothecary weights included the dram (or drachm), scruple, and grain - representing, respectively, 1/8 troy ounce, 1/3 dram, and 1/20 scruple (thus, a scruple was also 1/24 troy ounce, and a grain was 1/60 dram or 1/480 troy ounce).
So the coin shown is 2 scruples, therefore 1/12 of a troy oz. and ironically it is not actually a coin.
