    unknown coin or token?

    Hey everybody,

    I was digging in a local park yesterday and dug a few wheat pennies and this large copper coin or token. It measures between 26.8 mm and 27mm, on one side you may be able to see some leaves, and the other side maybe some letters or a number. I have been trying to look up images online but just can't seem to be able to find it, anyone able to help on this?
    I added photos and tried different angles of mystery coin. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Hello again,

    I was able to identify this mystery coin, its a Montreal bank token minted in 1837 before canada became a federation.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
