merchant token and civil war token registry sets

If you want a registry set of civil war tokens I think you're going to have to undertake building a custom / signature set for them. I think there was actually a custom set for civil war tokens that won a major award a number of years ago if you go back and check. I'm not sure on the exact year.

 

The "lot of rarities and varieties" you reference makes that a hard set to build a competitive set around. I think there's literally thousands of varieties of those things and how do you decide what to include and what not to?

I agree on that. I'm personally focused most recently on a very specific type of merchant token, of which there might be about 40 total types within around 12 varieties. And because they're so obscure I can hardly ever find any on the market in any condition. I just prefer to think that if a coin (or medal, or token) can be graded and attributed it can belong in a set somewhere. I'll see about digging up that civil war token set.

I think this 2014 winner is the one I was thinking of:

These two sets are also quite large and nice:

Enjoy! Civil War tokens are an interest of mine too. One of these days I'd love to get into them more but I need to finish some other things first.
