The 1960 Giants were a so-so team went 6-4-2. 1960 was sandwiched by Championship games in 59 + 61 which they lost.

So why am I 1960NYGiants? 1960 is my birth year. NY Giants are my favorite pro sports team. Dad used to tell me that I learned my numbers watching the Giants.

Wade, that's fascinating! Looks like it would break in two with just a little pressure, like a stale cookie. And as for the reverse, I'm imagining some sort of tiny termite burrowing into the copper around the top of the foremast.

Just wow.

Some recent Bust and Harp pickups. Been checking off a bunch of varieties in this series as of late.

Courteau (Co) 14, R6, VF


Co 17, R1, UNC (apparently from the St. Lawrence River hoard)


Co 3, R3, VF but slightly dented

I've got a couple that look like that toned Co17. Please enlighten me on the "St. Lawrence River hoard".

1960NYGiants, in the 1960s a hoard of uncirculated Tiffin and Bust and Harp Tokens were discovered at the bottom of the Assumption River (near the St. Lawrence river) in Quebec. These tokens are easy to identify visually as most were cleaned in a distinctive way to remove the 130 years or so of river crud that had built up on the surfaces.

They appear in some auctions here and there, usually described as pieces from the "river hoard" in "as struck" condition. From my viewing of past auction listings, it seems that the river hoard contained the following Bust and Harp varieties:

Co 3, 15, 16, 17

These all share a common obverse and are of crude design; it may be that they were among the last Bust and Harps produced. Such gives credit to the notion that each "group" of Bust and Harp tokens (based on workmanship of the obverse) were struck independently at different times.

We talked about it briefly on NumiCanada a few months ago (Sorry, it's only en français):
