I don't think so. I have a few Canadian half penny tokens both North and South and they don't match up. Thanks for the input.

I think the right terminology for these tokens would be Upper Canada or Lower Canada (The provinces)

Bigger than a quarter 24.26mm
Smaller than a US LC 28.57mm

There are lots of

ยฝ Penny Regal Imitation - George III left variations.​

size range from 26.5mm-27.6mm

The strike on the reverse was weak to begin with so with wear and environmental effects can give you an image as your recovery.

I wanted to see the same, thanks!
I misquoted as should have been upper or lower. Here are a couple images from the web. My collection is at my winter home and I don't have access to them for my pictures.

That's what I figured-It's all good.
The Bank Tokens are a thick token compared to other coinage that was floating around.
It certainly could be an imitation/Blacksmith token as there was so many different ones.
