1839 Bank of Montreal Side View Half Penny Token - Rotated Die Axis. In 1838 the Bank of Montreal replaced the Habitant tokens with a new issue showing a Corner or Side View of the Bank Building on the Obverse. These tokens were procured by Cotterill, Hill & Co.

Of Walsall, Staffordshire and arrived in Montreal in June 1839. 1839 the bank asked that the order of 1838 be refilled in the same amount as originally requested.

The coinage of 1839 was again procured by Cotterill, Hill & Co. But this time better copper and in more proper weight. This coinage was refused as well by the Bank's Manager who considered its quality even worse than that of the 1838 issues.

Bank of Montreal Side view coinage is legendary among Canadian Token Collectors. The Die Cuds, as on the Reverse of this token are natural to the strike, and although the Die Axis of this Token is supposed to be Medal, rather than coinage, It is Coinage, with, what seems to be a 190% Rotated Die.

Which is a Major Minting Error. Professionally Graded by ICCS as VF-20. The item "1839 Bonk of Montreal Side View Half Penny Token LC10-B1 ICCS VF-20" is in sale since Tuesday, October 15, 2019.
