K2301 Souvenir struck in brass at the Canada Court--A popular souvenir token

$145.00

The Canada Court struck medals as souvenirs and while they were popular, the numbers were somehat low. Finding one every decade or so seems about right for collectors and John Kennel managed to accumulate four or 5; we're still deteremining how many we have. They were struck in white metal and brass and more interesting, they were often overstruck on a US or Canada quarter. The overstrikes are in great demand and their cost is many times greater than "just a normal strike." It is also typical to see little bits and pieces of the host coin and it can take a great deal of time and effort to identify just what those bits might be. This brass medal/token does not appear to be overstruck but it is is in excellent condition and a fine souvenir medal/token from the fair.
