Foundling tokens were pinned by mothers to their babys clothes and upon entry, the Hospital would attach them to the childs record of admission. As foundling babies were given new names, these tokens helped ensure correct identification, should a parent ever return to claim their child. The children were not allowed to keep their tokens, which were frequently everyday objects, such as a coin or button. The practice died out at the beginning of the nineteenth century.
