Hi everyone. Today's token is from a gent named G. Pidcock. Now he had a show of animals called Pidcock Menagerie. He had the best collection of animals in England. He lived from 1796- 1810. It was also known as Pidcock Exibition. If in your travels of the wonderful world of coins and tokens. Especially conder tokens with animals on them. Your best bet they were copied from Pidcocks collection. Now to correct some history. He was not a die sinker. He did not make those beautiful designs of rare animals animals with two heads animals people did not even know existed.
Hi everyone. This token is an old one in my collection but not in the token community. It's from 1812. One of the other blogs touched on the war of 1812. As he stated there is alot of history and the most famous picture is The White House burning to the ground. Britain was a waring country. France Then U.S. then us again. Wars cost money and it caught up to Britian with a depression. Hit hard. Tokens are still in demand
