Dear pandamonium,

You are correct. These items are not cheap, because they are rare ones and it is hard to find the on the market. Exception are only few which are common.

ear fellow old Shanghai token collectors,

I would like to share photos and information about some old Shanghai tokens from my collections. I hope you will enjoy it.

I.P.TKACHENKO 10cents CONFECTIONERY is also a very rare token. Tkachenko is a Russian surname, which means that in old Shanghai Russian were also doing some business.

Reserve Coinage 10 cents Good for Amusement - there are only few such of tokens exist. Not easy to find anymore those.

Good for one bath no money value repunched token is such of condition is very hard to find. Most of tokens during Japanese occupation of Shanghai were silver-plated brass or copper.

1 yuan in shape of elipse. with hole above was issued by a bank in old Shanghai  - it is very rare token.

Finally The Oriental Ice Company Limited 10 LBS. with square hole made in brass. This is also one of the RAREST tokens from old Shanghai. There is also known CuNi variety of this token.

I received a note from Kondi giving me your address. I have a small collection of Shanghai tokens, mostly the E.T. Riley kind. My specialty is tokens issued by Chinese merchants in the Western United States and Latin America. The Shanghai pieces mostly seen in America are Tong K. Wing, Venus Cafe 15¢ and 4th Marines. Best wishes.

Hi Jerry, Have you, by chance, written a book on Chinese-American tokens? I also collect Shanghai tokens. I have just a few Chinese-American tokens, but find them interesting.

Hi Jerry,

I can't record right now in which circumstances we have met or got to know each other. Could you be so kind to remind me? Which exactly from E.T. Riley pieces from Shanghai tokens do you own? Are you sure that Venus Cafe has 15 cents? As far as I know there are 3 varieties of this token: 10cents, 20cents (both silver-plated brass) and 30cents (brass) which is the rarest one? C.U.A. Cafe no cash value token has 3 variety: 5c, 15c and 20c (written using chinese character 2 jiao). Do you mean this 15c from C.U.A. Cafe? If you would like Jerry I can get you some Shanghai tokens to your collection.

Bearcat is my good friend. We Share the passion of collection Shanghai tokens. I wouldn't give his personal address to anyone. Do you mean Bearcat's e-mail address?

Jerry, I contacted with a lot of token associations in US asking who is collecting Shanghai tokens. Are you from one of them?

BTW, this 4th Marines token, which exactly do you have? Could you describe this token also?
