1797 Warwickshire, England, Ngc Ms62 Kempson's Coventry Buildings, Condor Token For Sale

1797 Warwickshire, England, Ngc Ms62 Kempson's Coventry Buildings, Condor Token

1797 WARWICKSHIRE, England, NGC MS62 KEMPSON'S COVENTRY BUILDINGS, Condor Token

This is a beautiful brilliant uncirculated and historic Halfpenny “Tradesman's or Condor” Token or Medal from Warwickshire, England. Dated 1797, and part of his series of Coventry Buildings, it was struck by P. Kempson, a maker of Buttons and Medals in Birmingham.

It has been certified genuine and professionally graded Mint State 62 Brown by the prestigious third party grading service, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation or NGC.

In the late 1700’s there was a severe shortage of small change in England. Royal coppers had last been struck in 1775. Coins in circulation were badly worn and there were many counterfeits. In 1787 many merchants, manufacturers, shopkeepers, workhouse officials and others began striking private tokens that were welcomed and circulated as money.

The Provincial Token Coinage of the 18th Century by R. Dalton & S. H. Hammer, Warwickshire #279.

Back of the Holder

Obverse: WHITE FRIARS GATE • The buildings known as Whitefriars are the surviving fragments of a Carmelite Friary founded in 1342 in Coventry, England. All that remains today are the Eastern cloister walk, a postern gateway in Much Park Street and the foundations of the Friary Church. It was home to a Friary until the dissolution of the Monasteries under Henry VIII.

Reverse: THE ARMS OF • COVENTRY • P KEMPSON (No Period after the P, thus #279) • FECIT (Made It) • 1797 • The Coat of Arms of Coventry. Coventry is a City in England, historically within Warwickshire.

Edge: Incuse Letters: COVENTRY TOKEN.

The Token: A very presentable example, it never saw circulation but has some light marks and stains. The surfaces of the fields are almost proof-like with a bit of original red showing through. Even though it has been professionally graded and authenticated, grading is subjective so please see the pictures and judge for yourself.
