Canada - Newfoundland: 1841 Halfpenny Token, Rutherford Bros, Rare - High Grade For Sale

Canada - Newfoundland: 1841 Halfpenny Token, Rutherford Bros, Rare - High Grade

CANADA - NEWFOUNDLAND19th Century Token: 1841 Copper Halfpenny,Rutherford ref.138.16)

The Token Book: "Non-Local" - unlisted (most issues sent for circulation in Canada are excluded). I researched this token on the internet and I believe that I can provide an accurate reference and description.

Newfoundland, like other parts of British controlled Canada, suffered from a serious shortage ofcoinage until later in the 19th century. The first offical Newfoundland coins were minted in Great Britain in 1865.Before then, Great Britain did not provide a local currency and so worn foreign coins were circulated.The local merchants produced their own token coins. This token was issued by the Rutherford brothers whoowned a store in St John's, the capital of Newfoundland. This is an original tokenstruck in copper.Brass forgeries also circulated due to the shortage of currency.

Obverse:suspended sheep carcass* in centre with outer legend: "* R & I S Rutherford *"(above) and "St John's Newfoundland" (below).

Reverse: the arms of the Rutherford family with "1841" (below).

*The sheep design was copied from a design used on English tokens in the late 18th century.

The token was mintedby Boulton & Watt in Birmingham, England.

There are two varieties, with and without date and both arerare (exact mintage not stated). This one is dated 1841 and has a catalogue reference: "Breton # 952".

I found the following values quoted in Canadian dollars:F $50; VF $75; EF $100. This is a high grade example and much better than average for tokens of this period.

Note that the values shown above are for the standard type - there are varieties and errors but I do not have any detailed information about these.

It has a diameter of about 29.5 mm, weighs about 9.2 grams and was struck in copper.

General

We do not use coin grading terms but we provide exact images ofeach item to help you decide upon the condition yourself.

We show our normal postage and packing terms belowbut please email us if you have any queries or special requirements and we will endeavour to accommodate them if this is possible and reasonable.

Multiple Purchases, Combined Postage Discount and Invoicing:

We give generous combined postage discounts if you win multiple items. This is calculated by weight and a number of items may cost the same as or only slightly more than a single item. If you win multiple lots please wait for an invoice. We send these out by the end of the evening when all our lots have finished. If you have finished your offerding, you can request an invoice immediately and we will usually respond within a few minutes.

Post and Packing Policy:

We use a padded envelope and all items will be well packed. We try to keep postage and packing charges close to cost price. Please note that Royal Mail increase their postage charges in early April each year.

Customs Labels:

All packages posted to countries outside the UK and European Union must display a customs label. This will show the full value of the contents (rounded to the nearest pound). Please do not ask us to show a lower value as this is completely illegal and also against ’s rules. Please note: From personal experience, a small proportion of packages sent to countries outside the UK are routinely checked by the destination country’s customs authorities. Any customs duties, import levies or postal surcharges that might be applied in your own country are entirely your responsibility. This applies to all goods traded throughout the world.

PayPal Buyer’s Guarantee:

In order to comply with the terms of the “PayPal Guarantee” scheme, we must obtain proof of delivery. Some buyers do not seem to realise that PayPal will recover the cost of any successful claim made under this scheme, from the seller! For this reason, we reluctantly have to use the Royal Mail International Signed-For service for all packages sent to countries outside the UK and European Union. If you are uncertain about this, please contact us well before you offer so that there will not be any misunderstanding.
