The publication says that these were the first tokens in 1821.. However, the first tokens for this island were issued 100 years earlier - in 1714 :

@ Bruce: The people of the St. Helena Museum were very friendly and helpful, when I asked them about the OD counterstamp. But they could not help.

@ Alex: Yes, these pieces are shown in KM, but they will probably never be in my collection. My pockets are not deep enough ... From which source is your picture of the RACanteen token?

 My one is here so this accounts for two!

I guess I have 5 different pictures. But this would be still quite scarce. ;-)

The second link refers to your picture shown above.

The 5th piece was once offered at DNW.
