"JB" TOKEN SIMILAR TO A KNOWN NOVA SCOTIA PIECE

Last week in my numismatic diary I pictured a token belonging to Tom Kays. It's an English half penny of George I with script initials "JB" and "1812". It rang a bell with David Gladfelter, who writes:
This design reminds me of the J.B. Script token, Courteau 360 (Nova Scotia) and the 1812 date would fit. Haxby & Willey thought that Courteau 360 was a token of J. Brown of Halifax (#71, first ed. 1971). The editors of the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Canadian Colonial Tokens (first ed. 1988) lumped it in with the blacksmith tokens and gave it a number Ė I canít tell you what the number is because I am forbidden to use it without their permission! I have this token in my collection, but have no clue as to when, why or by whom it was issued.
