Br 925. The hole at 12 o'clock is common to all known North West Company tokens for stringing purposes. These pieces were produced in Birmingham, England, and reportedly found their way to the Pacific Northwest where they were exchanged with Native Americans for beaver pelts. This piece has distinctive greenish brass surfaces, PCGS Environmental Damage (Fine Detail). A rare and desirable token.
