Token: Great Britain Conder Stafford 1797 to 1803
A man named James Conder undertook the somewhat daunting task of identifying, organizing, and cataloging a large set of privately issued tokens used in Great Britain during the late 1700s and early 1800s. There were not enough regular government-issued coins to support commerce in sparsely populated regions, so various individuals took it upon themselves to produce tokens.
Bailey's token from Stafford is one of the more valuable Conder tokens. Catalog values run something like this:
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved: $100
fully uncirculated: $350
