Stuff like this is when we miss Allan Davies a lot - he was really good with HBC stuff.

From a presentation on Hudson Bay Co tokens by the London Numismatic Society:

... "The North West Company issued this token in both copper and brass. Company inventory records indicate that there were over four thousand of these tokens, with the majority being in brass. All but one medal are holed and the holes are in the same position on each token.
... The popularity of North West Company tokens has produced a number of counterfeits, copies and reproductions."

So it must be a counterfeit or copy as it does not have a hole.

In addition the date is far too large as compared to the originals.
