I am looking to purchase 18th Century British Tokens and am wondering if
there are any dealers that have such pieces.

Thanks -

I don't know any dealers that have a large supply of these, although
many dealers have a few.

I see in an old "Numismatic Scrapbook" that there are over 450 varieties
to collect!  This article enumerates all of these varieties.  If you are
interested in the date of the article, I could re-research it for you.

I used to purchase mine from a dealer in Hawaii who specialized in them,
but can't find his address.

Actually, there are considerably more than 450 varieties.  The D&H book,
which I've never been able to afford, lists many thousands.  Most of
these are specious items, which I don't collect.  Bell did a series of
books on these coins (which I was able to afford) that recataloged the
pieces (although the D&H numbers are the ones most everyone uses).

I don't know where I could get ahold of the "Numismatic Scrapbook," but
if you have any ideas, I'd very much appreciate the article's date.

Thanks -

george

If you are looking for copies of the Numismatic Scrapbook please let me

be $4.00 each if dated in the 30's, $3.00 each if dated in the 40's and
$2.00 each any other dates, plus postage.

British tokens of the 18th c. (and those of the 17th c. for that matter) have
been thoroughly studied and collected.  I can dig up references to catalogues as
well.  There are also several introductory books.

OK, I just searched 1938-1942 (I thought it was in this span) with
no luck.  I'll try to remember to post the date/month when I see it
again.  I also remember seeing a series of articles on "Bungtown tokens"
in "The Numismatist", but again, I've forgotten the year/months.  Maybe
someone out there has the index?

There are many British dealers who deal mostly with tokens, and you can
try one of these addresses, from Coin News. Maybe you should subscribe
to Coin News or some other British coin magazine as well...?
I find the tokens from Anglesey (with a druid's head on the obverse)
especially interesting, but there is a lot to find "out there".

1) Communion tokens, comprehensive catalogue. Coins of Beeston, PO Box
19, Beeston, Notts NG9 2NE, Great Britain. (These have a very large and
VERY interesting catalogue...)

2)17.th century tokens. Free sales catalogue. Michael Trenerry Ltd., PO
Box 55, Truro, Cornwall, TR1 2 YQ. Fax: 01872 22 55 65.
I don't know anything about this lad, but ... he's probably nice...?!

Good luck in looking for tokens, then.

Regards,
