I think I might dive into collecting Conder Tokens and am considering the 2004 edition of D&H. The only thing that brings me pause about buying the book is the price - $188!
Here is my first Conder token bought recently. If you have some, post a pic or two.
This is a 1795 Half Penny Middlesex (England) DH414 Pidcocks "Exibition" (note mispelling, no "h"). Pidcock's show was one of several popular travelling menageries or wild beast shows that drove through towns. Since people didn't travel much then, this was a source of entertainment. Pidcock was one that owned exotic animals and this token advertised his show while also serving as small change in circulation
