Token: Great Britain Conder Success to the Bay Trade 1794
That's supposed to be Colchester Castle in Essex, UK on the front and a loom on the back. Prices on these Conder tokens run roughly like this:
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $150
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.
Assembling a large set of Conder tokens would be great fun for the numismatist (coin collector). Since they are reasonably priced, the set would not break the bank.
