Tokens…

As with excavated coins, a token can be hard to decipher, due to there poor condition once dug out of the ground;

Maybe a picture or a word is visible, this then starts a hunt for an answer, we are trying to bring together a collective amount of pictures and descriptions from various books & sources, and would like to add as many clear photos as possible…

With so many books out there on Tokens it is difficult to find a place to start, for example, if you find a three legged symbol on the reverse of a coin, you know it comes from the Isle of Mann, but what your actually holding might be token, for tokens & coins were produced for all of the territories of the British Empire; whilst most tokens are associated with the lack of small change and are relatively thin, with production being instigated by local trades, & were produced for the local butcher, baker or candlestick maker…
