Frank W Grove. Self-published, Ontario, CA, USA, 1989. HB (blue 'leatherette' with gilt-lettered spine and cover. 280 pages, illustrated throughout with good line drawings; 2031 tokens are listed and described. The cover has slight signs of handling, otherwise internally very good and clean, almost as new.
For many of the tokens these 'line drawing' illustrations are better than photographs as many are crude, often weakly and only partially struck up.
Well printed on good quality paper, and well bound so that it lies flat when open.
These tokens, issued from the 1700s until 1829 supplied a great need as there was no circulating coin smaller than the 1/2 real. Their enigmatic nature can cause confusion and identification problems.
