Postby mithrandir » Thu Sep 04, 2008 9:38 pm

This is one of my favorite colonial token.

A few varieties of this coin exist;

1-1825
2-1820, 0 over 5
3-1820, Normal date
4-Imitation, good quality dies
5-Imitation, « blacksmith-like »
6-Legend

I have 2 of them;

3-1820, Normal date

Run out and buy the Charlton catalogue, Canadian Colonial Tokens (2010 is the latest I have, maybe there's a more recent one). There are 15 varieties listed, plus 3 Blacksmith types. Your 2 tokens are listed as LC-60E1 for the top one and LC-60C1 for the lower one.

From the Charlton catalogue I believe the first is LC-60E2 though I think it looks like copper.The second appears to be BL-8
