LOWER CANADA 1839 Bank of Montreal. Side View Halfpenny Breton 524. 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. The tokens were procured by Cotterill, Hill & Co. Of Walsall, Staffordshire and arrived in Montreal in June 1839.

The following year in 1839 it was tried again with the same amount requested, and through Cotterill, Hill & Co. But this time in 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. Grade: good Very Fine (Please note grading is subjective, and the best determination of grade would be a close examination of the scans). (Business # is 82778 1261 RT0001).
