|The picture shows the obverse and reverse of all (4) 19th Century Canadian Half Penny & Penny Tokens in this lot. These all came from an old collection.|
PLEASE NOTE: There were many different varieties of these early Canadian coins and tokens made. Because we do not specialize in these, you will need to be the judge of what they are by using the clear pictures. We are also not a professional coin dealers or graders, so we will not attempt to grade these. You will need to judge the conditions by the clear pictures of the coins.
These all appear to be made of copper. In the order of appearance (left to right) They are marked as follows:
ONE CENT 1855 - FISHERIES AND AGRICULTURE
BANK OF UPPER CANADA 1857 - BANK TOKEN ONE HALF PENNY
PRICE EDWARD ISLAND 1857 - (????) GOVERNMENT AND FREE TRADE
SUCCESS TO THE FISHERIES - SPEED THE PLOUGH
To judge the sizes the first one measures about 1" wide.
