    Description

    Tokens 44 Copper & Brass 1890 -1920, Appealing assemblage of 16 copper and 28 brass tokens, most likely to emanate from a century ago and thus circa 1890 - 1920.  The copper group includes 11 with a value (denomination) indicated and five with none. Of particular appeal is a set of 39 and 35 mm items, showing values of 3 and 2 units, for Espeche Hermanos. These were obtained out of Salta 32 years ago costing $70 for the set back then.  Two nice but unrelated items feature the national Liberty head motif of Argentina and likely parallel production of the somewhat similar nationally circulated 1 & 2 Centavos: both are for private use in Buenos Aires.  A trio with Espartilla on one side, and FAIR on the other, show values of 25, 50 and 100 (Centavos?). These large-format tokens were obtained years ago out of Birmingham England and may have been produced there. Secondly, the 28 pieces issued in brass include 10 without a value indicated, 7 with value "1", 4 with "5", 3 with "10" plus a 14 (unusual denomination and a neat item ) and two with "25" plus one with "50". Attributions are tentative and not guaranteed but none of the pieces seems remotely modern. Quality is as one might expect, or better. Sold as is, NO Return.
