    Default Fantasy tokens supossedely from the Channel Islands

    I have attached an old advert for these fantasy tokens which I think came from "Exchange and Mart" years ago. The pictures show all the different tokens that were produced in the 1960's/1970's in the Usa. They are fantasy as opposed to reproduction as we never had any such tokens here in the Islands during the German Occupation. If you see them for sale they are normally coming from the USA although some have made it this side of the water. Do not be fooled by anything they have written or said about them, they are fantasy and as such worthless as an original wartime German item. Unfortunately these things are out there to try and get us to part with our hard earned cash. For those who are bothered then please heed my warning as to the origins of these tokens, for those that are not bothered I guess you go ahead and buy them up. It would be much better to buy an original item in poor or damaged condition rather than an out and out fantsy piece.
    All the best from Jersey.

    Hi D, thanks. I remember "Exchange & Mart" very well.

    These things are indeed still doing the rounds today.

    Cheers, Ade.
