Exonumists are not badly spelt economists but are in fact collectors of exonumia . Usually that means tokens, though strictly speaking exonumia is a term referring to "numismatic items other than coins or paper money".
I myself dabble in collecting tokens a bit and also buy and sell them as part of our business.
We will feature more of these items in the future but for the meantime here is a picture of some transport tokens issued by the Conestoga Transportation Company ;
`Conestoga` in this instance refers to a town in Pennsylvania.
As far as I can make out, collecting American transportation tokens is not widespread amongst UK exonumists, certainly nowhere near as popular as, say, Co-op tokens, market tokens and the like. Still, they are do have a certain appeal.
For some reason Blogger isn`t letting me provided a link to our e-bay shop for you to click on. However, our EBay shop can be found at http://stores.ebay.co.uk and our Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com .
Happy Collecting !
