1936 The Park Coin Catalogue

Purchased a copy which I received in today's mail. Contains illustrations of tokens of Canada from 1670 to present(1936) by Bert Koper.
On the back is stamped JB Collectionne Les Mannaies Octave Pelletier.
Does anyone know of Octave Pelletier?

I have at least 6 with the doubled N and they all appear to be the same. One has the die crack in V of Victoria and one has the same die crack but with the top part of the A filled in.
