Conder Images Needed: Mike Grogan writes "I am starting a new noncommercial website dedicated to the study and enjoyment of Conder tokens. It will consist of high quality images of choice tokens arranged by county and DH#. Anyone who has such images is invited to donate them for posting on the website. Of, course full credit for the image will be given to the donor. My hope is that this will be a longterm benefit to the hobby and your images will help make the project a success."

Update on DNW Spence Auction: Peter Preston-Morley at DNW has graciously provided additional information on the upcoming Spence sale.

"We haven't started the promotional campaign for the Spence collection yet, but I can tell you that there are nearly 3,600 Conder tokens in it, almost all different. The collection was begun in the late 1960s and was largely complete by the early 1980s, by which time prices had, of course, risen considerably. Very few additions were made between 1986 and 1998, but a small number of rarities which eluded the collector back in the 60s and 70s, and which came onto the market following the dispersal of the Noble and Wayne Anderson collections a few years back, are included. Apart from these, the collection includes pieces from virtually all the named collections put together during the 20th century, including Dalton, Hamer, Cokayne, Longman, Farnell, A.W. Jan and Gerson. The collection represents the largest single dispersal of Conder tokens by auction in the UK since 1958 and it ranks as the second largest collection sold in the last 45 years (the Noble collection, which had 4,908 Conders, remains comfortably the largest of its kind dispersed in modern times). The collection will be sold in London in at least two parts, the first being on October 7th 2004, and the second part in October 2005. Both auctions will take place the day before the annual COINEX show, the UK's biggest international event of its type. Cataloguing will start in early June and details of the lots in the auction will be posted daily at while the cataloguing cycle continues."
