    Description

    Famed Nitrate Mine Token Collection of 517 Types, Moises Yudelvich of Santiago, along with the accomplished ANS curator Elwin Leslie, authored a booklet based on their acquisition and study of this most definitive collection of its genre. In 1980 the acclaimed TAMS along with Joe Gregory published the green-jacketed volume CHILEAN NITRATE MINE and RELATED TOKENS which included 38 pages of itemized listings with many illustrations. Prior is an inspired eight page introduction with a bibliography of classic and current studies about the material. That listing, compiled more than a third century ago, included the present group, plus perhaps a few other types, and certainly some varieties not in this currently-available collection. All denominations of each issuer are listed in all metals, mostly vulcanite but many in brass or copper and even some in cardboard. The important plate coins for the book are in this currently offered group. Quality is mostly nice and certainly similar to the norm for the series if not nicer. Quantity must be considered approximate but certainly totals at least 517 pieces. The important original green booklet, with a grade penciled -in for each of the items in the collection, is included with the lot. Sold as is, NO Return.
