CH NB-3. Nearly AU, clean and mostly toned with underlying lustre. A few light hairlines. A scarce piece issued by Frances McDermott that is unlikely to have been intended for circulation in trade, but rather as some form of personal card. Presumably issued in 1846, during a very brief period in which McDermott is known to have operated a store on King St. Ex:Henderson, and also the piece plated on p. 43 of Richard Bird's Coins of New Brunswick, which contains a good summary of the token and its issuer.

This is part of The Richard Cooper Collection.
