This catalogue lists about 14,000 different tokens, based on the numbering system used by G.C. Williamson's classic reference work published between 1889 and 1891. Until this catalogue was published there had been no major work on the subject since Williamson's work so many new pieces had come to light in the intervening period which are published in this book, nearly 20 percent of the entries in this catalogue are completely new.

The tokens were mostly struck in copper or brass in denominations of farthings and half-pennies. Commonly they were round, but octagonal, square and heart-shaped flans were also used. They offer a fascinating insight into life and trade, personal circumstances and local history in the third quarter of the seventeenth century.

An indispensable catalogue for all collectors. With market valuations given throughout.
