Judging just from the crown and the leaves, I'd say XF-40 at a minimum, but not even close to AU. I really can't grade coins from a computer screen ... you can't tell actual wear from where just the patina has been rubbed off.
Here's what I got from a Token collector from another site: "This piece is a restrike, but still commands a decent price in the $1500 - $2000 range. Originals are about 3X – 4X the price of a restrike. The original pieces have round O’s in the lettering, whereas the restrikes are oval ‘0’s. Als...
You will need to have a real-life token expert look at your Token .. not just a random coin dealer. According to my Charlton Canadian Colonial Token book, those in copper are extremely rare, but there was a proof also struck that is listed at $750. The coins were never officially struck for circulat...
Because it passes through both the design and the field, I think that it is definitely a scratch. However, where it starts on the top, It appears to go through the rim. A die crack would be a protrusion rather than an incuse mark below the surface. A strike through very seldom will show in the dsesi...

One of the best shows in Canada will be here in 2 weeks at the Toronto Reference Library on Yonge & Bloor, a block and a half from a subway stop. Lots of folks from all the Canada coin forums will be there.

Post your coin on this site (attached link) and "pginrh" will chime in and let you know all about. He is the guru for Canada 50 cent and author of the 50 cent variety guide in Charlton, but Charlton didn't have 10% of the space needed for everything that pginrh has recorded: https://www.co...

Wearwise, VF-30+, but the surface sends up flags for me. Many many 50 cents are being faked, even the common ones. It's hard to define/opine something when it's not in your hand.

In addition to the suggestions above, you can try to find the old Hans Zoell pamphlets/books from the mid-60's to the early 70's. I would start with the 4th iteration from the 60's .. that's when he started separating Major from Minor varieties. His Major Varieties are what we consider now to be var...
I have a friend that collects only twonies and he has some way way offcenter. You should keep it .. there are more of these around than you think, but there is a slight premium.
