I realized that I haven't been on this page in quite awhile. Missed a lot of great coins. This is one of the recent acquisitions that I am most fond of. One of the first "Conder" tokens. It's in good condition for the type.

I picked this up this week in the NGC CCE World Coins Signature auction. I collect wildman coins and have been looking to pick up one of these for a while. There were actually 4 varieties of this coin that sold in the auction but I think this one has the best appearance.

For your viewing pleasure. Unlikely to see another one like this any time soon. This is the definition of rarity.

Is this the "Bold Fine," or has a third coin been found?

@Just Bob this is VF35, so either is the XF, a very very very bold fine, or a third one (I assume perhaps wrong that is the XF).

So, you own one of either two or three coins that are known to exist. Very, very cool. :golfclap:
