Scotch House, 36 High Street Belfast (1840s - 1880s)

Here is a lovely old trade token for MacKenzie & McMullen's 'Scotch House' - Cheap Drapery Warehouse of 36 High Street Belfast, which sold 'silks & shawls'. The earliest reference I can find to it is in the 1840s, and the latest is when General Ulysses Simpson Grant visited the city in 1879. I'm sure somebody out there can tell me more about this shop.

I recently found this token in central Pennsylvania while metal detecting near an old logging town.
