Beccles Conder Token

Coins - World | World_Coin_Nut

Mike Burn recently wrote a blog on Conder tokens and I thought I would write something to add to the theme.

I recently picked this up for a reasonable price from a Heritage auction. It is in pretty spectacular condition. It does have a few planchet cracks I think it adds character.

I found the following entry on Wikipedia: Beccles is a market town and civil parish in the Waveney District of the English county of Suffolk. The town is shown on the milestone as 109 miles  from London via the A145 and A12 roads, 98 miles northeast of London as the crow flies, 16 miles southeast of Norwich, and 33 miles north northeast of the county town of Ipswich. Nearby towns include Lowestoft to the east and Great Yarmouth to the northeast. The town lies on the River Waveney on the edge of The Broads National Park.

What I like about the conder tokens is that there is a huge variety of themes and for the most part they are reasonably priced.

I agree, and I like your blogs. I like Conders because of the themes as well, and especially because they do not have a boring portrait on the front. The Britannia sitting a rock ones are the only ubiquitous, and imo boring image, in the whole bunch.

I was rite about the grader at NGC he was lazey. If you look at your coin there is an apostrophe after the b in B'eeccles. He also didn't put Ipswich on the label. But like I always say it's the coin not the label! It's nothing to worry about. I'll probably get mine back from pcgs the same way!mike

I sent you a message. Are you ready! I bought this token the first week of March! I can't believe it. That's the South side of the church. I wrote more in the message. When I get my book later I look it up. Congratulations. I told you they grde high. People needed them for food, but they were so beautiful they put them in a draw. The one I bought came from an auction in Britain. Has not seen the lite of day in 75 years. I'm hoping for a red brown 64. I let you know what I get. Mike. Enjoy it looks good for something over 200 years old!
