|HT 204||Low 148||AU 58 BN||R-1|
A high grade for this popular cross-border issue that is listed in both the Canadian Breton and Rulau catalogs. While this token was intended for use in the United States, having the Bouquet Sou reverse, it appears to have circulated more in Canada than the United States. Most of the tokens seen have the same die cracks running through both sides. This is one of those tokens sought after by both U.S. and Canadian collectors, and because of the high grade it should see heightened interest from both camps.
Heritage Long Beach Signature Auction #450, February 14, 2007, lot 304.
