Description

Hunterstown was a small village on the Rivière du Loup, about 25 miles from Louiseville. Sometime, about the year 1850, an American lumbering firm, known as the Hunterstown Lumbering Company, secured the limits, and for years carried on extensive operations. The company had a supply store, and paid their men in script, redeemable at the store. This token, was good for a half-penny. The first specimen known to collectors came into the hands of Mr. P. Murphy at Quebec.
