Token Activity Up, Up, Up:
I can't be the only one that's noticed the increased number of tokens on Ebay, most notably from lockdales-of-ipswich
(Lockdales of Ipswich
- Eastern England's Premier Coin Dealers & Auctioneers of Collectables ), d.stuart
(Alnwick British & Colonial Coins & Tokens
) and the_coin_guy77
, but from others as well. This EBay activity combined with the Davissons Ltd
Auction 21 ending 10 June and the recent E-List
from Copper Corner
have provided a great opportunity for collectors ... and very soon of course, another excellent buying opportunity will be here with the 7 October Dix Noonan Web
auction of the first part of the 18th century British trade tokens collection made by Dr David Lee Spence.

Copper Corner June Sale List:
Bill McKivor of The Copper Corner
has sent out an E-List for June 2004
. He writes, "Here is a little list of Conder tokens and items that are not included on my regular quarterly list. The Conder tokens are from an old-time collection, where the collector was more interested in the varieties than he was in collecting in high grade. Year ago, that was the way it was done, and even today one would have a real problem trying to find all of the D&H numbers if high grade was the only thing being collected ... As usual, these E-mail lists rather assume that you shall use D&H to get descriptions, I don�t get as 'descriptive' as I do with my quarterly lists. If you have any questions, please E-mail me."
