Complete Listing of know Recuerdo Matrimonial Tokens

On each token, the lower numbered design is counted as the "obverse."
Note: for the moment, I am not listing "brass" separately from "gilt brass" or making a distinction between tokens with reeded edges or smooth edges. On many tokens the gilt (gold colored) coating seems to wear off easily, and many tokens are seen with only traces of gilt. Many tokens are also observed with weak or partial reeding.
