  1. My grandfather gave me this token. Apparently its a communion token from 1856. Its gilded bronze 34mm and on the front is a picture of Napoleon IV and on the back the christening scene at notre dame. Does somebody know more about this token? Price? Rare?
  2. Hello anyone know what is that? Arabic maybe?
  3. It's a token of the city of PĆ¼ttlingen, Saar, in Germany. My dad gave it to me and maybe he got it when he visited West Germany in the 1980s. Does anyone have an idea of what is it? It's in a prooflike condition but worn out in parts.
  4. Hey all, I just finished minting my first run of Hard Times Tokens and thought I would show it. Seems appropriate for the times. This is the first strike:
  5. I was going through my coins and tokens and found this one, forgot where I even got it. I guess I procrastinated and someone beat me to it.
  6. Tuesday, March 27, 2012 Dear Board, By chance, does anyone have access to this article? Sharples, John (1988b). 'The Kangaroo Office': A Nineteenth Century 'Sting'. Numismatic Association of Australia Journal. 4, pp. 29-37. I just called up the ANA Library today and was a bit disappointed (although not really surprised) to hear that they don't even carry this journal. I would like to read this article (or something as potentially helpful) so as to better understand the details behind the striking of W. J. Taylor's undated Melbourne Exhibition halfpenny tokens. Here are a couple of examples: http://www.noble.com.../lot/?id=286510 http://www.noble.com...s/lot?id=286512 Note that their reverses borrow the reverse design from the draped bust Washington & Independence tokens. This is why I am researching these concoctions by Taylor for my Numismatist article on Washington & Independence cent tokens. My thanks to the board for any help that can be provided along these lines of research! Best regards, Mark Fox Michigan
  7. Dear Board, If others aren't too busy, I would appreciate some help here: http://www.coins.nd....TARY.intro.html From the above webpage, Louis Jordan writes: "The Wellington tokens were struck at Thomason's press with dies and punches cut by Thomas Halliday, a die-sinker located on Newhall Street in Birmingham. Rulau identifies the specific Wellington portrait punches used on the Washington military bust tokens as varieties of the Wellington bust used for the Wellington peninsular token Charlton WE-11, which is cataloged with seven small bust varieties (WE-11A) and eight large bust varieties (WE-11B)." He got this information from Rulau and Fuld's Medallic Portraits of Washington (1999), p. 35, and apparently from the 4th edition of The Charlton Standard Catalogue of Canadian Colonial Tokens (2000). Now, here is what Rulau and Fuld exactly wrote: "The portrait on Baker 4 is actually that of the Duke of Wellington! Thomason simply borrowed the punch used for the Canadian Wellington tokens, Breton 987, Charlton 222-224. Thomas Halliday created the obverse dies, Ingram the reverse, and Sir Edward Thomason struck them." Confusingly, Breton 987 corresponds exactly to WE-11A in the 6th edition of Charlton on Canadian colonial tokens (2006) while it supposedly corresponds more vaguely to "Charlton 222-224" in the 2000 edition. Is this correct? Did Charlton seriously revamp their coin cataloging system in the interim? I am confused as to which Wellington Peninsular token varietie(s) share the same obverse portrait punch with the Washington & Independence military bust tokens. Any insight would be most appreciated!
