BOOKS ON ONTARIO TOKENS AND MEDALS

After seeing his ads in a Canadian numismatic publication I wrote to author Harry James for more information, and he submitted the following. For more information or to place an order, contact Harry at harryjames6@gmail.com . -Editor
I have five books published on tokens and medals used by various businesses throughout southern Ontario. These are:

Numismatically Elgin, Numismatically Oxford, Numismatically Middlesex, Numismatically Norfolk and Numismatically Perth. Each of these books covers various businesses in the county covered and the tokens or medals they used. A brief history of the businesses and a description of the tokens used by them along with illustrations of the tokens and some of the stores is in each edition.

Numismatically Elgin is currently out of print but should be available shortly. The cost of the books are $15 plus $4 postage for Elgin, Oxford and Middlesex and $18 plus $4 postage for Norfolk and Perth.

I am currently working on a book for Waterloo County as well as Essex County. I am not expecting that either will be ready in the very near future. I also hope to begin on Brant County some time soon.
