Is there, or should there be, a condition census for the most popular Civil War Token?
I just ran across the following Merriam Good for a Scent token at CRO which mentions this is the most popular Civil War Token without question. Given it's popularity and the great specimens I've seen over time, I was wondering if there was, or if there should be a Condition Census for these?

1863 F-115E-1a, Struck in Copper with a Plain Edge.
Without question the most popular Civil War Token, this a pleasing medium brown Choice Unc. with considerable mellowed mint red on the obverse and reverse.
PCGS has 3 on CoinFacts but no Condition Census yet.
Of note, there was an announcement back in 2010 for CoinFacts and Condition Census for coins, so the question is should the same thing be done for tokens and medals?
