So today I picked up this one. It is Nova Scotia token NS-20A3 according to Charlton.

But if you look closley you can see it is an overstruck.

Most clear around the date 1813, you can aware London.

Anyone an idea what the original token/coin it was?

There is also an overstruck mentioned on coins and canada, that looks similar.

Here some outlining of what I have found.





Charlton mentions that the halfpennies are struck on bristol halfpennies.
So some searching I came across this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1811-BRI....c100623.m-1

You nailed it. Most NS-20's, along with many other tokens of that time period, are struck over 1811 Bristol Tokens for Samuel Guppy's Sheathing Nail Manufactory

those guppy's took a beating on more than one occasion - including the half penny issue which was host to the 1813 eagle token (among others)

Well played. I can't resist a well-placed pun!

Couldn't help myself fortcollins, haha

Here's an example of NS-20A1 in my collection that is similarly struck over a Bristol penny,


and a Wellington token (WE-2B2) struck over a Bristol halfpenny. The overstrike does not show as well in this example but is noticeable on the obverse head and the reverse lettering.



Wade, that is a super nice 1813 eagle!

I've shown this coin a few years back but I thought I'd add it to this thread as it shows the host coin so strongly.

Cheers, Bill
