Chatsworth visitor token 1800

This token is a family item. It was owned by my father's forebears the Middleton family who then lived at Leam hall, Eyam, Derbyshire, not far from Chatsworth. I have shown the photo to the Archive Dept there. They have not seen one before but think it's genuine and would have been used by this local family for regular visits to Chatsworth (cf Jane Austen..) The back of the token says 'Not transferable'. (My father's family who inherited this lived in Dinnington, S Yorkshire)
