Collins - Clothing Bazaar

Description

The business was not listed in the Bathurst Directory for 1862, so it is likely to have been established between 1862 and 1864. The only listing for a person by the name of Collins in Bathurst in Samson's National Directory of New South Wales for 1867 was for G.A. Collins of Morissett Street, suggesting that the firm had a brief existence, possibly of only 4 years.

The dies for this token were retained by Stokes and were employed in the early Twentieth Century to restrike the original and muled with two other Stoke reverses for collectors. Late strikes are characterised by corrosion of the dies.
