Re: North West Token...Copy Or Counterfeit?

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300540154234&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

This is an extremely good likeness of a genuine NW token, and would be a terrific example of this token for the collector who could not afford the $12-$18K this nice an example would cost them.

All but one of the genuine pieces have a hole. The unholed piece is in the Canadian Currency Museum in Ottawa as far as I know.

Copy and counterfeit seem virtually synonymous. It would be much clearer if this piece was stamped with 'copy' on the reverse. Seller states it is a copy, so he is not trying to deceive. However, there is a chance that the next owner may not have the same integrity. Hope this helps.
