    Heres an interesting To hanover counter dated 1862 with diferent sizes of datal figures one is masive and the other quite small - I imagine they were made by the same manufacturer.
  3. The 1844 dated coins were almost certainly specially minted to present as a alternative to the then circulating change , it would be fair to imagine the were given away to lobyists , MP's and various others including the mint ,Probably as many as fourty were issued for this purpose , though it could be a lot lower than that . Many have been lost and only less than twelve are known now

    David magnay was a big fan of model coins though it was not his only interest - I have a letter from him in the early eighties thanking me for discovering a couple of pieces he had never seen . I am sure his collection was sold long ago. I think I got his address out of coin monthly

    TOY COINS

    They are becomeing more collectable now than in the past - people realise that a great and interesting collection can be built up for a tiny amount of money - you try a few hundred quid on Victoria bun pennies and see the poor quality and low grade stuff you will have to put up with . A few hundred pounds on to hanover tokens will buy you lots and lots , though I have noticed that a few more unusual pieces are fetching £20-£30 on ebay so there must be some demand for interesting pieces , this will only increase as more and more stuff sells on the bay. By the way larry I do think your example has no "Lauer" but cannot be sure, so might have so I say 20/80 sure

    It was just a find from google so its not my coin , its a pretty good guess there are loads more around though.

    I got one of those Russian advent calenders this year you open a window every day and an oligarth/critic falls out

    TOY COINS

    Remember this was an early piece from 1845-55 at a guess but it does seem strange yes - at least we have at least three varieties to go on now , I now have to search down one without "Lauer" and also one with Queen on the obverse.

    Totally lovely coin I also saw that on ebay and don't quite understand why these dont end up selling for hundreds of dollars in the states - everything to do with this period is avidly collected in the usa and fetches big money , why not this coin - their loss i surpose.
