Gary Patterson had a question about an eBay item, and asked me to forward it to Tom DeLorey, author of a catalog of Thomas Elder tokens. Are any of our readers familiar with this piece?
Gary Patterson writes:
The seller stated it was made for Elder in 1911. I have a copy of DeLoreys' Elder Tokens & Medals that he wrote for the ANA back in 1980. This token is not listed.
Tom DeLorey writes:
I do not recall ever seeing anything that would suggest that Elder had this piece made. If he did, he was silent about it in his auction catalogues, which were the basis of my research.
