Angusshire 10, a Public Building/Ship at a Quay. Ayrshire 5, Fullerton's pattern penny. RARE.
Buckinghamshire, Amersham 2a. Musical instruments, /"Peace" &c. Carmarthen 7, workmen, interior of iron works/interior view of forge. One of the most detailed tokens in the series, and very hard to find in high grade detail.
Dublin, Bryen's D&H 384. Farthing, rare. Gloucestershire, Newent D&H 64, issued by Morse. An apple tree and shield/legend in a spiral.
Kent, Goddington 23. Brass, 1767. Included in D&H for a reason that escapes me, as it is a hop token and a fairly rare one. Lothian D&H 52, View of building/Scotia seated, ship and shield. Supposedly 100 struck but it must have been 200.
Middlesex D&H 180 Bis1. Obverse of #180,George III/ "Frogmore" reverse. The second token would thus be Middlesex D&H 180 Bis 2, as it has the same "Frogmore" reverse. The obverse, however is a rare one of Queen Charlotte. These are very rare medals struck from dies also used for tokens. Middlesex D&H 181. Struck in silver. George III/Alter and Snake. This token struck to celebrate the King's recovery from "Madness" in 1789.
Middlesex D&H 192 -- George III/Regalia upon a pedestal. This in gilt copper, and quite choice. Middlesex D&H 342, Ibberson's issue, George slaying the Dragon/Mail Coaches, &c. The last is Middlesex D&H 378, Meymott's. Britannia obverse, Arms of London reverse, "Scales & Weights.
Middlesex 465. A man holding a picture/Sea shells on the shore. The obverse from a famous painting of the connoisseur and the tired boy. Issued by Ratley. Very handsome token, considered RARE, but a few more seen than that would allow. Very popular, however. Middlesex 520 -- a man in chanins with a padlock on his lips/Knife and fork chained to a plate. Anti sedition law token, and quite interesting, as is the last in the group, featuring three men hanging/and an anti-Jacobin sentiment.
Norfolk, Yarmouth D&H 54. Female with scroll/Britannia seated, receiving homage from Asia, Africa, and America. Well made and interesting piece. Renfrewshire, Paisely D&H 2, View of church/Interior of church. Penny piece. The final piece is Staffordshire 23, Tamworth castle/Cypher. Nicely done and difficult to locate.
Warwickshire 31 -- this an auctioneer's penny token featuring a man behind a counter holding scales. The reverse has the hand and the hammer, and Jacob's legend. The second token is Warwickshire D&H 317, Webb's token. Very rare, a woolpack on the obverse/arms on the reverse. The last is Warwickshire 322, Bust of Shakespeare/Pandora's Breeches.
Warwickshire 337. This token is the first silver "Conder", meant by the issuer, Wilkinson, to be a shilling token, but he changed his mind. Very few struck. Bust of Wilkinson/A ship. Wilkinson made the first ship out of iron -- people lined the shores to laugh when it sunk, as they thought it would, but of course it did not, but floated right well -- the second token is Worcestershire, Hagley D&H 21, with a man fishing on the obverse, and a tree and snail on the reverse. The last in the row is Yorkshire Sheffield D&H 58, men at a forge/Arms. This is a rare token that is usually too weak to see any obverse detail. The one pictured has some mint red.
