Canadian Colonial tokens
C. Chapados-Girard, Editor
In the 11th edition of the Charlton Standard Catalogue, Canadian Colonial Tokens, nearly 200 pictures have been added or improved. The previous simplification of the reference numbers to keep only the most relevant ones was continued. Many hundreds of minor issues were also improved.
Another major collection has entered the market, namely the Donald G. Patrick Collection, which was offered in two different sales in the spring of 2021. A U. S. based collector, Patrick had an impressive number of rarities. Many of those didn’t see other hands than his for half a century. His Blacksmith tokens were particularly impressive and proved very helpful in showing the state of the market last year. Lots of realized prices were noted and some images were improved because of their resurgence through the Patrick Collection.
In the previous edition, Charlton added the Bust & Harp series. This time, they added the Tiffin series. Some extremely rare varieties were also added, and others were noted to make collectors aware of their existence.
In the past few years, demand for Colonial tokens has remained strong as more collectors join the hobby.
