Very nice Conder, Ian :ninja:

I have a few Conder Tokens, but have yet to find a nice Scottish piece.

Thanks. The Scottish ones tend to be a bit harder to find in collectable condition. They certainly saw heavy circulation in the main.

 

I've got examples of all the key 1/2 d issues including some variants but have struggled for years to even sight some of the penny ones. I'll try to get some of them scanned and posted. I think I might have a couple of dup's somewhere too. :lol:
