Available in Stock
First published in 1986 and recently reprinted, this catalogue lists all known major types of the 17th-century series of token coinage issued in the British Isles between 1648 and 1679. The tokens were round, or sometimes octagonal or heart shaped, and mostly struck in copper or brass in denominations of farthings and half pennies. They offer an insight into life and trade, personal circumstances and local history in the third quarter of the 17th century.
