The Token Book 2, Unofficial Farthings and their Values 1820 -1901 by Withers P & B
Hardback, 310 pages.
This brand new book expands the scope of the original Token Book to include over 1,000 nineteenth century unofficial 'farthings' produced by individuals and companies as both a response to a shortage of small change and as a form of advertising.
The authors researched from directories, census returns and other sources in order to produce a comprehensive catalogue which includes all the latest discoveries, new types and varieties. The tokens included originate from all over the British Isles as well as 45 'non-local' types including 22 'Columbia' farthings.
