Here's a little project I did for a friend. While not as functional as a pasta roller it did have the desired effect
Impressive!

Cool indeed, Wade, but it must have involved a lot of heat!



I never pay too much for my tokens...but every now and then I may buy one a little too soon.

This one came in this week.

Not sure which one it is. First I thought PE-10-27
But after a closer look I think PE-10-30.

What do you think

Good looking token...I put it through the step by step id on CaC and it indicates PE-10-27..I'm always trying to see all the subtle differences in the many varieties of this token that make them a fascinating study piece.

Looks like PE-10-30, no hump on R in Commerce and full center stroke of last E in commerce.

edit to add: oops, @blargish is right (see below), I missed the blunt tail R. Sorry.

Picked this one up at a local show today. Brunk has a reference to I B but does not mention QUEBEC. Copper, 7 grams, 28mm, plain edge. Does anyone have any other info about this?

Gebs, your SCC token is PE-10-28 with the blunt tail on the R of COMMERCE.

In contrast, PE-10-27 would have the characteristic obverse mizzen-sail "die-cut" that it shares with PE-10-33 (in addition to a round ampersand on the rev). PE-10-30 has a double punched first S of SHIPS that is also easy to spot.

1960NYGiants, that's an interesting piece! An example of one of those was in the Donald Partrick sale where it was listed as a "blacksmith token" although this was likely done to draw more attention to the listing. Here is the link: https://coins.ha.com/itm/canada/can...1202-97296.s




They appear to be stamped on blank flans and are reminiscent of the CANIDA St. Amant coppers. There was apparently some merchant in Quebec whose initials were "IB". Below is an interesting example I came across of a US half-cent with an IB counterstamp over which a Devins and Bolton counterstamp has been applied. There is also MSB counterstamped on the opposite side (reverse) of the coin. https://www.vcoins.com/en/stores/ha...Default.aspx

@blargish - thanks for the links. It appears my piece and the Patrick piece are of similar or same maker. I am fortunate that the dealer I bought mine from was not aware of the Patrick piece. I paid $35 USD for it.

HA states in their description that it is unlisted in Brunk which is not entirely accurate. The I B mark is listed as Br # 20940 with no listing for the QUEBEC mark. Brunk discusses that I B may have meant Isle Barbados but later rules that out. Brunk also mentions that I B has been seen on some US Large Cents dated c.1800

@1960NYGiants:
Wow, at $35 you got one heck of a deal. I've known about this token for quite some time, and this one is quite rare and highly sought after.

Unfortunately, to my knowledge it has never been identified to date. However, some make a connection with the St. Amant/Canida token (See A Hoard of Canadian Coppers by McLachlan in the Canadian Antiquarian and Numismatic Journal of July 1889).

Here is an example that was present in the collection of Warren Baker:



Sorry if my English is not perfect, I'm still learning...
