if you collect tokens, this book is one of the key books for Condor, Evasion, Farthings, trade tokens etc. ever written. There have been up dates and newer books out there but this is the original.

Invaluable reference for locating information about my Dublin unofficial Farthing. Only place online that could tell me it dated to 1847. Very grateful for the scanning effort done to make this searchable online.
