Gorgeous! No disparagement implied, but only my neighbors to the North could effect such a beautiful strike from such a horribly cracked die.

Thanks Don. I agree with the heavy trees, wide date, short nose, and also the oval period after SALUS, and I think open M of MONTREAL. According to Corteau that would make it 58, 59, 60, 61, or 62 (or even possibly one that is not in Courteau's book) So, 59 is a possibility. But Courteau says that the obverse for 59 is the same as 51. and 51 says "same as 48, but the first left window of the middle story is broken." I don't see any evidence of a broken window, but I don't know what the broken window looks like. Does anyone have a #51 that can post a photo of the broken window?

In order to figure out Courteau's book on these tokens, I think you would have to have a lot of tokens for comparison and I only have 2.

Courteau also doesn't refer to die cracks very much in his descriptions of these tokens, so there's no help there either.
