Set Description
This will be an ongoing set of different tokens from Britain. There will be different die sinkers and manufacturers. Some will be penny's and some are of buildings still standing. You must give me some patients I'm trying to learn this. But I promise you will see the good and some bad I believe there all good. Of course . When you pull up a token look closely at the detail not only are they eye pleasing but expertly done. None of these were made here they all come from from Britain. I seem to find the best there. So enjoy them that's what there for. Some of these will have edge writing on them. Some NGC starts it on the label I will put the rest in comments. Some I put on the reverse with the "P" Touch. It works this way you will have it all. PCGS does not due this information that's why I do not recommend Brutish tokens be sent there. But it's your preference . Currently Token number 306a was made in Middlesex every Conder collector knows this. NGC has to change the Label. How did they get it wrong to begin with. I will keep on them till it is changed. Thank you for your patience. I'm sorry about there mistake also there are only 61 in higher grades. Thank you I'm sorry for There mistake. If Benjamin Franklin was alive today we would be back at war. Check out the new P.Kempson penny . I told you I would be adding some as we go along this one is deserves a look. Enjoy more coming. Another was added March 9,2019. Just heard from NGC I have five coming back I chose from my collection all beautiful and very desrible. Give me about about two weeks. I will put them up and send another five. All for your enjoyment in this field of Numismatics. By the way allot of these are bronze when I put them up it says copper that's wrong. Another problem. Should be on the label. I have up dated the site with some great tokens more to come for your enjoyment. I have more in slabs but many more raw. I will not post the raw coins as beautiful as they are. Just the slabed.I do have some beauties coming back soon. They will be posted. As of May 9 2019 I added three more great tokens. Including a Coventry Token graded MS 66 as soon as I find a way to put it were it belongs i will. Thanks Mike update I'm sending in 24' beauties. I hope you enjoy tyem. Then the corona virus hit i will wait two weeks till they catch up. Sorry but i mine to go to the token group. I'm sure you would also. Because of the virus my tokens have been held up in grading. Do noe know when i will get them. But then i will
I will post them. There back after buying great tokens the covid virus has made it 41 days to grade not counting shipping to and getting them back. I will be posting more the next few days. I don't think you will be dissapointed. Thanks for.waiting!! Well t!here up. Some new tokens. There from the The New Birmingham Mint. They make coins for The Royal mint. It's a set and this one I will not complete. There from the 1800 and one from the 1900. Still tokens from the same family who owned the Birmingham mint before that the Soho mint. They graded good MS 66 65. But there proof and they did not put that on. Oh well we all make mistakes!!. Enjoy more to come. Mike.P.S. There are tokens from the 19 century and 20th because I tied the three mints together. Owned by two families!!

Set Goals
To share with fellow collector's the beauty of these tokens. Some are penny's some half penny's. Some from other sets like Kempson London series now that's a heart attack. Thirty eight. If i was twenty and started searching maybe by sixty I would find them all of there still around. We knows some are but all is a different question. I have sets I will be putting up in competitive sets. That's down the line. I need patience and time. I just hope you like them. Thanks Mike.
