I like the detail!  Wish I could blow that image up a bit more to see more of it!

Here's a bigger pic, hopefully!

I found an example of this very common large medal about 4-5 months ago.  Finally got around to photographing it.  There is a good amount of lovely purple, blue, and reddish toning around the portraits -- but very hard to capture in photos.  This is now a part of my ongoing (but slow) Victoria portraits collection.

Another lovely token Paulus.

Just noticed, that bloke's hands are even smaller than Trump's!

It seems there are a good number of copper lovers here. So, I hope it's okay if I start a thread where we can all post pictures of our favorite copper coins, tokens, or medals.

=======================

I will start with a Provincial Halfpenny Token issued in Yorkshire in 1791 (D&H 17). There is an interesting die chip in front of the horse's head, and a rather "cool" die crack on the reverse through the date and shield. A good amount of luster remains.

OBVERSE: The design is taken from the equestrian statue of William III standing near the south end of the Market Place. It was erected by public subscription in 1734, and was at first in a large square, but this took up too much space, and it was replaced by a close railing with four lamps placed around it. The statue was executed by Scheemaker. The pedestal bears the inscription: "This statue was erected in the year 1734 to the memory of King William III, our great deliverer." The legend around is "GULIELMUS TERTIUS REX." which translates at "King William the Third". The exergue bears the date "MDCLXXXIX" (1689) -- the year in which King William came to the throne.
 
REVERSE: The reverse presents the Arms of the town of Hull, originally known as Wyke-upon-Hull, and subsequently Kingstown, or Kingston-upon-Hull. The legend around is "Hull Halfpenny" and it bears the date of striking of 1791.
 
EDGE: The edge is stamped with the text "PAYABLE AT THE WAREHOUSE OF IONATHAN GARTON & CO". Garton and Shackles were linen drapers in the Market Place in Hull.

much scarcer than most believe though it suffers from the lack of halfpenny collectors IMHO

Stop after date more common on the farthings

Early milled halfpennies are always appreciated at our house. Well, by me anyway...

Nice addition to your collection Scott.;)

Continuing my mini collection of Cinque Ports Conder Tokens, here's my latest (Faversham - a limb of Dover)

Why they have spelt it 'Feversham' I have yet to find out!

Not to mention the erroneous apostrophe - that was the only reason I bought mine. :)

Never did find out why the hedgehogs though...

How about this 70mm medal from the Vienna World Fair in 1873, featuring an extraordinary portrait of Franz Joseph I. The words over the top of the reverse apparently mean "For Progress". Edge is blank.

Apparently it's the arms of the Hardy family consisting of a shield with four hedgehogs and a hedgehog crest

A glitch has meant I haven't been able to post in this thread for a while, but it seems to be working again!

I'm interested in all Conder tokens, at the moment I am trying to complete the Kempson Birmingham Buildings series, and collect a decent example for every Cinque Port and limb thereof. Anything interesting though, in a decent grade and at a fair price, I tend to grab it!

Here's another Kempson, I'll post some of my more interesting ones now that I can use this thread again
