Good very fine.

Little is known about this early society or club,but it is presumed to have a Jewish connection. There are three slightly earlier tokens, a penny dated 1796 and a halfpenny and farthing dated 1780 which also bear this curious device and name. However, on these earlier three is the word 'PURIM' which possibly inicates that the Cabbage Society was a Jewish organisation.Curiously the pictured device is a cauliflower rather than a cabbage.

It is possible that it may have a connection with a society of tradesmen who met in Paternoster Row,underneath a cabbage painted on the ceiling.
