I have found a number of Condor and other tokens while appraising this collection that the owner wants to sell. Here is a sample of one of the Condor Tokens.
Hi @RichUrich , nice token! Just for clarification, they are Conder tokens -- named after James Conder, not named after the big birds.
Another beauty Larry , Do you have all your Conder pics in one place so people can admire a truly beautiful collection ?
Many of my Civil War Tokens are also featured on those websites.
Thanks for the look at one of the FINAST examples I've seen so far,and I've been looking!
