Although technically not a Conder token I collect the later tokens along with the Conder tokens. Just picked this one up. It arrived from across the pond last week.

I've not seen many of these tokens, other than the ones collected in the US as "colonials".  Fascinating. I'm guessing that these are collected by county and/or theme?  Very nice Coinsarefun.

There are many ways to collect these, especially as it is impossible to collect one of each and there are several thousand varieties (not even counting all the edge varieties).  As you said, some focus on a single county, some collect only the Genuine Trade Tokens (GTTs), others focus on the political tokens of Spence or the animal tokens of Pidcock's.  Not surprisingly I have a special fondness for the farthing tokens.  Some are focused on collecting as broad a range of tokens, while others focus on collecting only the very best, and rarest examples.

There is such a variety of themes and designs that each collector can build the collection best suited to their interests.

It's taken quite a few years to acquire a nice example of the Johnson token from the Johnson/Perrins bout of 1789.

Looked up the bout referenced above. An hour of bare-knuckle heavyweight boxing. Brutal. A bit of an Ali/Liston match but without the quick resolution(s). Good history, thanks for posting.
