Sale of a collection of Welsh and other tokens, property of Emyr George. Text only catalogue for use as an aide-memoire for free download.
Some collectibles are rare, untouched and expensive: these used relics of a by-gone age are for the most part very inexpensive and redolent with our social history.
First of a few sales of an extensive collection of tokens, tickets and passes, including token coinage of 18th and 19th centuries, transport, mining, colliery, industry, taverns and pubs, social and political clubs, refreshments for civil and military use.
This sale also includes all his Shropshire Tavern Tokens; he wrote the reference book with Todd and Cunningham. Again, some real rarities here known only by 1 example.
While the collection is mainly Welsh (we’re only up to Glamorgan in pubs and C in the mining tokens and lamp checks this time) there are strays from the UK and overseas. Please use the online search facility.
