Conder Tokens, also referred to as the 18th Century Provincial Tokens, were a form of privately minted token coinage struck and used during the latter part of the 18th century and the early part of the 19th century in England, Anglesey and Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. The driving force behind the need for token coinage was the shortage of small denomination coins for everyday transactions. Most collectors consider Conder tokens to include those indexed originally by James Conder.

Edward Webb set up his business as a seed merchant in the middle of the nineteenth century at Wordsley in the West Midlands. In 1876 Edward Webb & Sons was one of the earliest applicants for a registered trademark (number 928), which covered agricultural seeds and artificial manures. About 1894 the firm took over, and later expanded, the bone and manure works of Proctor & Ryland in Saltney, near Chester. By the end of the nineteenth century Webb's seeds were well known throughout the country and the firm had been appointed seedsmen to Queen Victoria.Webb

Colonial Canada, Blacksmith Copper, J & C. Peck / N. Starbuck and Son, c. 1835 - 1858

|Tokens,| |Medals| |&| |Exonumia|, |Colonial| |Canada,| |Blacksmith| |Copper,| |J| |&| |C.| |Peck| |/| |N.| |Starbuck| |and| |Son,| |c.| |1835| |-| |1858||token|
"Blacksmith Coppers" refers to some types of imitation British halfpence struck in colonial Canada. The name comes from the story of a Montreal blacksmith who, "..when he wished to have a [good time] struck two or three dollars of these coppers and thereby supplied himself with sufficient change to gratify his wishes."

The dies, engraved by Benjamin True of Troy, NY about 1835, were for the obverse of a J. and C. Peck Company token (HT 363) and the reverse of a N. Starbuck and Son Company token (HT 368). Howland Wood in "The Canadian Blacksmith Coppers" first published in The Numismatist in 1910, wrote that he believed these dies were sent to colonial Canada after they were discarded, where they were used to strike blacksmith coppers in the early Nineteenth century, before Confederation minting began in 1858.

The Benjamin True dies were usually used only on one side and the other side was struck using locally made halfpenny dies depicting Britannia. The false halfpenny dies were shallowly engraved with minimal detail and the coins were weakly struck. The intent seems to have been to make the coins more acceptable by creating them with a circulated and worn appearance. It is hard to imagine that this type with a hard times token obverse and reverse was acceptable, which is probably why this type is rare. This die combination was not listed by Wood.
