Irish Political Tokens (Nationalist - IRA Counties Stamps)

Apparently, stamped coins were issued for all the original 32 Irish counties. The seller, whose name is unknown to me, claimed to have two complete sets, plus these eight duplicates. He / she told me, vaguely, that they were struck during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, and were used for propaganda purposes. I was told that the sets weren't sold to raise money for the IRA, but if that were the case, he / she must have known someone who made them in order to acquire such a large number. The seller considered selling me a complete set, but when pressed, never made an offer. I've since lost touch.
