I love them. Great tokens. They should make quite a splash in the others or copper catagories for our next BCPI.

I'm glad to hear there will be another BPCI :ninja:

I obviously enjoyed the last one ;)

I love this group. I think that Conders are still one of the most interesting and inexpensive "deals" going in numismatics. But if you keep posting pics like this we're going to have hard time keeping that a secret aren't we? :ninja:

Hey Auld one!

 

That York one, i saw a few of those in York when i was there. A bit overpriced they were (i would think at any rate as they were in an antiques centre) but they had a heck of alot of lustre left on them. I recognised them immediately after i'd seen a picture of yours!

 

It's weird where things can turn up, i would never have noticed them if i hadn't have seen yours first. When i go coin browsing i tend to tune out (brain switches off) to all the coins i don't need so i stroll past them without batting an eyelid, saves me a heck of alot of money in the long run but i sure miss alot! :ninja:

I do the same thing, Ætheling ... Then, if nobody has what I'm looking for, I circulate through again and look at practically everything. I'm afraid that's how I end up with coins I "really didn't want in the first place" ... but I enjoy them anyway :ninja:

Thanx for sharing. A beautiful collection of pieces (that I know nothing about). That first one..the York..WoW some *very* impressive detail on the architecture!

Thanks for the kind words :ninja:

I only have a small collection of these, and most of them have architecture of some kind on them ... cathedral, church, bridge, buildings of some kind. I love the detail on those, too.

All beautiful high grade conders. :ninja: Congratulations. I'm envious of your York one in particular!

I really like the political tokens from that era, someday I would like to find a Thomas Paine token.

 

I also like a very common one, the Incline Plane at Coalbrookedale.

 

Well, here you go ...

Oh my, a bridge! I adore bridges, and that one is lovely!

Welcome in the darkest area of the darkside Sir! It's hard until you get your first token... ;)

I've started my tokens collection with a beer token from my city, and now I have kilograms...but no Conder tokens yet... :ninja:
