As I am downsizing my coin collection I have run across some hard times and civil war tokens. They sparked my interest and seem to be a low cost way to keep my hand in the collecting game. The history behind the tokens is fascinating. Prices are hard to find and seem to be all over the place. Anyone willing to share information or their experience in this area would certainly be appreciated by me. I have several reference books but they aren't current or well organized.

I have picked up a few along the way, just because I find the history interesting, and I liked the designs. Sort of like the way I am with Conder tokens: I look at a lot of them almost every day on Ebay, and I even put some on my watch list, but it is mostly just to keep current on the price levels. I rarely pull the trigger on one. That will probably change at some point, as I narrow down my interests.

I do have the fourth edition of Rulau's token book, if you ever need info on mintages, etc.
