    I have found out about this one and to me it was very unusual . I was unaware of a 'jetton' and the value they can hold so I thought I would share it with you. I am presuming they were used as a substitute for cash but I am sure keramikos will let me know. That's day 2 over now, off to bed it's just past midnight here. Neil

      Collectables59, Here's everything I know about jetons (I typed "jetton" into a search engine):

      I'm going to log out now, and glue my face to a different screen (television).

      TTFN!

      Canada before confederation issue hundreds of “jetons” in lower (French Canada) and “tokens” in upper (English Canada). Many of the early banks issued them as currency.

      LOUMANAL, Good to know.

      Semi-buried in the forum I linked the other day was a link for this interesting piece on jetons:
