this one's not mine, and I not the bidder/buyer, but it sure is nice to see it getting a decent price

No clue here as to what the right price might be for that token, Wade, but I do believe that among numismatists and exonumismaniacs alike the technical term for it would be "Gorgeous."

To the best of my knowledge and according to my records, the last 1 Penny 1857 (PC-6D) certified by PCGS «MS-65 BN» to have sold was in April 2016 and it had obtained about $480 ( PCGS #33375554 / Courteau #275).

But personally, from the photos(I know it can be very misleading), I prefer the one currently on sale, even though it is a very common variety (Courteau #290).

I figured my 2500th post better be in the tokens forum,

while not exceptionally pretty this 1832 over 1382 is my most recent addition.

early on when I started collecting I had an AU version but replaced it with an MS65 example... only to find out the MS65 was the 1832 over 1882

had already sold the original before I noticed

Here are a few on their way back from PCGS. Sent them in back in early October.

@1960NYGiants:
It's a very nice lot.

The PC-6B1 tokens of +/- uncirculated grade are really uncommon (Especially the Courteau #234).

Some are misidentified by the TPG, but not yours

I think this one was in the Robins collection uncertified.

Congrats, to the pontiff from the mysterious East (at least to us in the T.O. area). According to your name/icon, you are nearing 9500 posts.

Wade, is that counterfeit the variety that develops the drop-shaped die flaw underneath the nose?

War is imminent ! Blargish's avatar (US flag PEI token) just unleashed a broadside at my ship !




Couldn't pass it up. PE10-32, does anyone have a ship salvage operation ?

Wade's thistle token is NS-3C1, the flaw under the nose appears on 3C2, 3D1, 3D2.

Was it used as a button? Many old coins were!

my 1832/1382 is actually a C2, very early state of the die chip and not visible on the photo.

Thanks for the clarification TerryT and Wade.

TerryT, that blast to the hull may have done the job! As I'm sure I have said before, I cannot recommend Christopher Faulkner's book Imperial Designs enough for those that are interested in the series, and colonial tokens in general. That book is a treasure trove of numismatic and historical information that reaches far beyond the Ships series and PEI.

As for that specific variety (PE-10-32), whenever I come across that characteristic die flaw projecting off the right of the unfurled mizzen (rear) sail, I'm always hoping to see the round knob ampersand on the other side (PE-10-33). That variety is pretty rare and fetches a nice premium; you can still come across unattributed examples once in a blue moon!

A bouquet sou pickup. Breton 684, LC-41A1. I've heard this referred to as the "Montreal Sou" and Charlton also indicates that it was struck in Montreal, but I've not been able to find any other references to its origin. Does anyone familiar with the series know of any examples that are struck over other tokens, as Breton 674's (LC-40, Jean Marie Arnault's Sou) often are? Any further information regarding LC-41's would be appreciated.


Also saw the following UC-8A2 show up unattributed (variety-wise) on eBay. Not something you see every day! Hoped I was the only one that spotted it, but apparently not even close!
