Just out of curiosity do you collect them strictly because they are large laminations or because they are laminations on early Canadian tokens, or any error on early Canadian tokens? I've always liked these dramatic de-lamination's myself I just find it hard to value and then to know what to pay.

90%+ of my interest (and collection) is in CDN Colonials, but I don't go looking for errors or varieties unless they are visible to the naked eye (cracked planchet, lamination etc).

The Un Sou was near $50 CDN, the 1812 was a little less.

The Bouquet Sou token is identified by Breton as 694, and Courteau as 38B, and Charlton's as LC-31C.
This is one of the most common of the Bouquet series having a rarity factor of 1.

Quality control was not a paramount concern of the minting practice of this series and the workmanship / craftsmanship was likewise lacking. As with many other colonial tokens of this era, I doubt if the quality control of lesser mints ever rejected or culled any struck piece.

Considering all, this should still grade VF-30.
