BL-10, Wood-14 variety, circa 1820.

One of the early, incredibly crude and thus delightfully charming Canadian Tokens of this era, this with a simple silhouetted obverse portrait of a figure notable for his hair ribbons which may or may not actually be a baby on skis. 

Amazingly, the reverse is even more charmingly crude, depicting either a discombobulated seated figure or possibly a bicycle accident.  Not sure which.

The piece itself is a fantastic, lustrous, golden brass example as nice as any Blacksmith Token we've seen of any variety.

$1,500
