A couple interesting coins I found in some foreign junk boxes . . . .

    This first one is pretty worn out. AG- at best. From the PROVINCE OF UPPER CANADA, dated 1832, it is a HALF PENNY TOKEN.

    Next up is a pre-independance penny from Jamaica, dated 1920.

    The Upper Canada token shows King George IV, strangely, it was issued 2 years after he died. Upper Canada was the region immediately north of the Great Lakes, which included what is now Southern Ontario and part of Quebec

    Going through these boxes, primarily looking for silver, I ran across this little guy. He's really tiny, almost completely worn out, and doesn't have enough silver in it to get excited, but hey, any find is a find, right?

    For your enjoyment, a 1910 Chilean 5 cent piece.

    I love World coin "junkbox" lots.

    Nice find on the Jamaican penny. I don't think I ever encountered one from George V in bulk lots. One of the more recent lots which came my way (in a vintage clasp purse) contained a dozen George VI and early Elizabeth II Jamaican pennies from 1937-1960.
