Can someone help with the specific attribution of the Conder token I just got. I have been able to identify so far that it is a Lancashire Manchester half penny, possibly DH (D&H) 135A, however the NGC slab describing a similar coin lists only "PAYABLE IN MANCHESTER" while my token's edge lettering is "PAYABLE IN MANCHESTER LONDON AND BRISTOL". Despite a relative preservation of the edge lettering it is crude and uneven, so I have had to guess about Bristol, it may be something else. Same source - Internet coin dealer listing notes that the token was issued to commemorate the construction of The Manchester Bolton & Bury Canal, begun in 1791. Will appreciate a confirmation. Also opinions on the grade will be valuable as I do not have much experience with the Conder tokens. I know it is not a rare token there is at least half a dozen of them listed on the eBay albeit in poor quality, so I hope some info can be shared.
