Matching Tokens with Numismatic Ephemera
The store cards, tokens, and medals of Thomas Elder are among my collecting topics. In addition to the actual pieces of exonumia, I watch for interesting ephemera items that relate to my collection. In the instance discussed here, I acquired the blank subscription form for Thomas Elder's proposed series of numismatic tokens devoted to the Colonial and Continental Coins of America. Elder states his intention that the series be limited to protect those who subscribe to the series. Each token would be limited to 10 in silver and 25 each in German silver, brass, copper, white metal, and aluminum. The issue would be limited to 135 examples of each token.
