THE TOKEN BOOK 2 - Unofficial farthings and their values 1820 - 1901

Paul & Bente R Withers. Published by Galata Print Ltd., Llanfyllin.  2013.  310 pages HB 135 x 216mm, with colour illustrations and all the latest discoveries - many new types and varieties. About 1,100 tokens: 686 English, 193 Irish, 156 Scottish, 13 Welsh, and 45 non-local including 22 so-called ʻColumbiaʼ farthings.

 

The issuers are researched from directories, census returns and other sources, revealing their ages, details of their families, how many servants they employed.  When they died, their wills, etc.  Obviously, this was not possible for all of them, but if we could find them, they are listed.
