Skidmore & Son, Founded by John Skidmore (1748-1823) and later joined by his second son, Paul (b. 1775) in 1795 or 1796. They carried on an iron-foundry and held the appointment of stovegrate maker to His Majesty's Board of Ordance. The company produced numerous tokens, ultimately responsible for more than a quarter of all the token varieties produced in the late 18th century, including those issued by Matthew Denton, Thomas Prattent, and Thomas Spence.
