    These are largely un-researched & unappreciated in the UK. Very unlikely to find anymore info than what I gave from the most comprehensive book on these. You would need to go to a local paper archive to find more or a local Leeds Museum (even then they might only have the same info given)

    Well I got chance to speak with the people who dug the other two known tokens here in the U.S..Nice to talk with them.They seem nice and was very shocked to see another one had been found.They gave me some names of books on these type of tokens,and offered all they knew on them.But was't much more then I had found out on here.These are the sites given and found.

    And those with high speed these shows here are neat on Pbs.You can go online and watch them.This one is about the first english colonies here in the americas.They have several to choose from.Just thought some might be interested.

    Much as expected, although this is a little more coverage than most tokens.

    I bet they were excited & surprised!

    Who cares about the banner really, its taken you on this journey of discovery with the help of Tnet & from someone on the other side of the pond How many other finds are likely to stur up this much historic interest Maybe you will get lucky again, the site might have more of these! The field I'm doing at the moment seems to have many different types but all the other fields I do very few turn up. So there maybe others....

    FINALLY! Glad to see that it finally made it, any idea of what made the difference? Did you submit better photos or did it just finally sink in to someone that it was that historical? Congrats!
