Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Bahamas token.


I have a token from Bahamas, Long Island. Its reads on the front Edwin Rahming and the back, Long Island. Its 22.3. EF condition.
Q. How many pieces are known to exist and what is the market price?
Thanks a lot for your time and information.

Hi Ed,
There is not much in the way of information on how many are known to exist, however back in 1915 this token was already considered very rare and considered that less than 10 pieces existed in total. A few more were found in the 1960's, but I would still estimate no more than 10-12 pieces in known existence. Value of course depends on condition. A couple had sold at auction just this past month for a little over $600 for one with issues and $800 for a nice example.
Thanks for the question! =)

My specialty is world coins from the 18th to 20th centuries, primarily non-US foreign coins and related areas such as errors and exonumia (tokens, medals, etc.). I can answer questions relating to identification, grading, selling, preservation and evaluation of such items. In addition to catalog value, I can give you the practical market value and trends for specific types of coins. I will also take questions regarding counterfeits (both modern and antique) and on how to identify them. I am NOT knowledgeable in paper money/banknotes, ancient or "shipwreck" coins. Thank you.
