Would appreciate a few recommendations on reference works for conder tokens, who's reliable, who's affordable, who's available and who should be avoided.

Thanks in advance.

I have been holding off hoping someone with more knowledge could help and enlighten me at the same time!

My main reference at the moment is "The Token Book, 17th 18th & 19th Century Tokens and their Values" by Paul and Bente R Withers, published by Galata in 2010. It is good and covers a lot more than just the Conder tokens, including a good section on Evasion coinage, but does not aim to be comprehensive.
D&H seems to be the master reference, but I don't know when this was last reprinted. I also have Schwer Price Guide, but that was printed in 1983 and is small with not a lot of detail.
Hopefully now someone else will chip in.

As a former Conder collector, I own and have used all the books mentioned by PaddyB, but should point out that the folks at The Conder Token Thread may have more up-to-the-minute advice.

D&H remains "The Bible" on Conders, of course, and an updated edition was recently released by Bill McKivor. I'm not sure how much it costs, but I doubt there's anything out there that's more useful, comprehensive, etc.

For the ultimate in affordability, the original D&H is available for free online here.

It's 600+ pages, but you can download it to your hard drive as a PDF so you'll always have it at your fingertips.

Wash your hands, everybody!
