The Token Coinage of Warwickshire free pdf Excerpt from The Token Coinage of Warwickshire: With Descriptive and Historical Notes The increasing interest taken in that branch of numismatics which treats of tradesmen's tokens, and the love of the pursuit generally, have induced the Author to undertake to arrange, tabulate, and illustrate those of Warwickshire. The advantage of confining research to a single county will now be undisputed. A compiler, native to the locality, and having naturally more special knowledge of it than a general writer on the subject could have, a enabled to add local notes of special value and interest- and in the following work every endeavour has been made to include all information that would serve to illustrate the main subject, without overloading it. As Warwickshire enjoys the distinction of having issued more tokens than any county, except Middlesex, there needs no apology for putting forward its claim for separate consideration. Moreover, it will be conceded by numismatists generally, that for choice specimens of the art of die-sinking, both in execution and design, this County has no rival. The Birmingham and Coventry examples, especially, mark distinctly a "high art" period of coin engraving. In addition to our own public and private tokens, most of the rare and best wrought pieces of other counties were engraved and manufactured in Birmingham. Among these may be mentioned those of the Yeomanry- many of the buildings of London, Bath, Gloucester, c.- the well-known Badmington pieces of Gloucestershire- as well as many pieces of Middlesex, Devonshire, Cornwall, Kent, Lancashire, Norfolk, Hampshire, Sussex, Wiltshire, Yorkshire, Scotland Wales, and Ireland. New tokens, and unpublished variations of die and edge readings, together with others which have hitherto been placed in the non-local series, but are now traced to Warwickshire, with substantial evidence of the locale, are included in the compilation. The plan of the work aims at being simple and comprehensive. Every token has its distinct number, but at the same time each variation of the principal piece can be seen at a glance. This will remove the objection which many collectors have to small letters after the numbers. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
