ABC Coins and Tokens Updated: David Stuart writes that 17th Century Tokens, 18th Century Irish, Scottish and Welsh "Conder" Tokens and a new category of 19th Century Copper, Brass and Silver Tokens at the Alnwick British & Colonial Coins & Tokens web site have just been updated with new items. He also notes that many new books including Dalton & Hamer's "The Provincial Token Coinage of the 18th Century" and Paul & Bente Withers' "British Copper Tokens 1811-1820" are now in stock ... and he reminds us all that to be fair to everyone, ABC Coin and Tokens' policy is "first come first served".

Mark Rasmussen Numismatist: Michael Knight has written to suggest adding a link to Mark Rasmussen's website. Mark is a former Spink employee who went solo a few years ago. He is listing part one of a collection of 18th century tokens. Once at the Mark Rasmussen Numismatist site, the list can be found starting at the menu bar at top of the page, under Collections, which drops down allowing you to select 18th Century Trade Tokens. You may want to get on Mark's mailing list as these are apparently sent out two weeks before items go online.
