To which Melys replies:

Ah, my concern was more with wearing the favors of a bar, rather than 
it's real or imaginary status.  Yes, as someone mentioned, we do have 
examples of souvenir tokens and the like from the RMA (Real Middle Ages) 
but as far as I can recollect, they are primarily from pilgrimage sites.  
Now, I can see making a case for Cheapside being a pilgrimage site.... 

Otherwise I'm still for the tankard idea....
