Canada – B. Joliette, St. Paul de Lavaltrie, L.C. 15 Sous or 7-1/2 Pence November 20, 1838 Graham QC195-10-08. PCGS Choice About New 55. Unlike Wolfred Nelson, Barthelemy Joliette was clearly a member of the establishment and a loyalist to British rule in Lower Canada. He married into the family that governed St. Paul de Lavaltrie. Once a War of 1812 officer, he helped quell uprisings in his district during the Patriote rebellions. Printed on "Whatman 1838" watermarked paper. The center shows a Spanish Colonial real coin with dual-language denominations flanking. Ends have the denominations in simple cartouches. Signed. Noted only with "Minor Mounting Remnants on Back." Very lightly handled, but boldly embossed to the back. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education SocietyHID07501242017
