Middlesex Halfpenny Conder token D&H 319c, a little off-centre but nice toucan! Circa 1790s.

Obverse reads "TO . THE . CURIOUS . OBSERVERS . OF . NATURAL . PHENOMENA."

A penny by H Young, Coin Dealer. An early strike before a piece broke off the die, obliterating the date.

Can anyone help with more information on this coin please? I do not own the coin; it is a picture I put into my reference notes many years ago when I bought a YORK Clifford's Tower + Minster 1795 Half Penny, but I don't think I have ever seen another York Minster one paired with QUEENS BAYS Cavalry...………….. so think it must be a rare piece.

Not my area of expertise, but think I may now want to collect the YORK (my home town) Tokens as a bit of a side-line to Victoria Pennies, so if anyone can help improve my knowledge of those pieces that would be much appreciated.

This is D&H Yorkshire 64, or 64a if it has a plain edge. Regarded by D&H as very rare (64a) or scarce (64)
