Ships Colonies & Commerce

Found this token in an old coin collection. Appears to have a single mint mark, but there is wear at point second mint mark could have been. Worth having this token certified? Looks to be a Lees -24. Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello and welcome! I see a die cut at the mizzen-sail near the flag. Could be PE-10-33. :Rechercher: :D

Thank you. I see the dye cut (pretty obvious, now that I look)--and assume this is a round ampersand. You may well be correct about designation (I hope!).

The coin was in a small, fairly random collection I got from my dad, who got it from his father. This token has been sitting in storage since the early 1920s. I am now retired and liquidating the collection. Live in the US (Minnesota). Wondering whether this is a token enough buyers would appreciate on eBay, or whether I should try to access a more directly knowledgeable and appreciative group of Canadian buyers. Is there an active market for these tokens? Must the token be certified to sell at market, or are there sophisticated buyers of this token who can buy "as is"? Sorry to ask so many questions, but I am feeling my way through things. I believe this token might be the most meaningful coin/token in the little collection. Thanks again for your prompt response.
