MAY, JUNE, JULY 2013 List #72 --------- “Something for Everyone”
18th Century “CONDER” TOKENS-------17TH Century tokens—19th Century tokens
Evasions, Unofficial Farthings, Medals, medalets, unusual historical items----
Hi Folks, ----Don't know about you, but I am sure glad to see Spring. For my wife, it is when the flowers come out, for me, when my antique cars come out. Planning a great summer. As for the tokens and medals, once again a nice selection to choose from. The demand is stiff in the higher grades, with prices rising on both sides of the pond. We seem to be emerging from the economic downturn, and the requests for good material just keeps coming.
As to the CTCC, the web site is in an early form, but not up for lack of content. As President, guess it is up to me to get something started, so a history and an introduction to the club will be the first item up, when I can get to it. Hopefully in a week or so. We do want it to be there as a resource for collectors, to let them know what is available, give historical background on individual tokens or on the series, and a good bibliography. Also just in the dreaming stage is reworking and uploading the back issues of the CTCC Journal. The CTCC annual meeting will be August 15 at the ANA convention, Rosemont, Illinois. Plan on attending if you can, the time and place will be on the ANA schedule. Enjoy the list, Bill
Have a look at this FIRST ITEM FOR SALE----$18 each, we shall get no more of them------
Conder Token Prints, suitable for framing----Some years ago, James Roberts painted some Conder Token art, each painting of an interesting token. From time to time I have had a print or two, here I have several, these are NOT framed, the image over 7" and round, the paper it is on around 11" by 8 3/4". Limited numbers, as you would expect, and I think the only ones left. A great addition to your wall, add some for even more token enjoyment. Available, The Bull token, Hereford 4, obverse only. Basingstoke Hampshire 1, the canal token, ship Obverse only. Lord George Gordon, Middlesex 775, obverse only. Rooster, London Corresponding Society, Middlesex 203, obverse only. George Washington--Lancashire 116, (1791) obverse only. Swan token, Middlesex 174, obverse only. George III/Visited St Pauls, Middlesex 177--arms of London (pair) obverse and reverse, priced per each. These well accomplished prints are $18 each, plus post, the pair above is $35. There are a total of 8 different prints, no more than 2 of each. Will sell a full set for $120, be quick!! Roberts planned for 100 of each, but no more than 5 of each were done.

17th CENTURY FARTHINGS AND HALFPENNY TOKENS PAGE EIGHT
These tokens were struck out of necessity for change. They are quite crude, but served the need at the time. They circulated in very small areas and most were struck in very small quantities. They are listed by Williamson numbers, from his book on 17th century tokens. Withers and Dickinson's guides list the prices in Fine, which is considered a normal grade for the 17th c tokens. I try to find at least Fines.

EVASION TOKENS as in Atkins, Cobwright, prices in the Token book for the most part---
Most of these tokens were made in the late 18th C, many in the last few years of the century, some made later
and a few earlier, but the date on the piece is to be taken with a grain of salt. Many who could not read
accepted these pieces, which were made in worn condition-- to make it look like they had been in circulation
for a good length of time. Avery interesting series, and one that often confuses the new collector.

SIEGE OF PARIS--by the Prussian Army, -1870-71. This is an amazing medal, silver, 65mm, in a framed and glazed turned brass holder (over 100mm) allowing viewing of both sides of the medal. It was presented to the Society of English Friends, with the engraved legend, in French, thanking the society for going to the aid with goods to the Commune of Villemomble during the Franco-Prussian war-- with their "profound esteem". Villemomble is about 9 miles to the east of Paris, and it is not known how the English managed to send supplies to the Commune during the Prussian siege!! As to the medal, some inquiry leaves it as expected, most likely UNIQUE--it is unknown by any in the trade in the UK or France, save this one. This EF, in the original box. Medal, all hand engraved on a shaved agricultural piece-- the brass holder about new-- all contained in the box (114mm) is VF+. Rarity, condition, history, it has it all. -- $1125.
A second note on this-- The only one known belonged to the society in England, they disbanded some years ago. The medal made its way to the sale floor-----I could not resist it. This is, of course, a piece with no value at all, except what the owner puts on it. Many thought it worth twice my asking price.
