(?) The 1850's is actually rather late in the day. There are a few example assurance jetons in this thread that were struck in the late 1600's /early 1700's

You forget I live in America where a building built before 1900 is relatively rare.

:)

that may well be true....but someone somewhere was providing `assurance' in relation to buildings in the USA; assurance against the risk of accident; life assurance (in some form or another); and various forms of `risk' associated with transport /trade long before the 1900's. 

Those darn Europeans brought their concepts of syndication and risk amelioration with them when they came over to the new world.

my latest addition. Struck somewhere between 1820 and 1830 for  the Assurances Maritimes de Rouen,  an apparently short-lived maritime assurer.
