British Dental Tokens

The British series is rich in tokens related to dentistry, many however, are rather elusive.  These tokens began with the barber-surgeons in the 17th century and continue through early engraved tokens, 18th century Condor tokens, 19th century unofficial farthings and 20th century merchant pieces.
