Canadian cent flattened by the Royal Train in 1901
I know this is a foreign coin but there have been multiple threads on funeral train coins here so I thought I'd post it.
According to the stamping on the coin, it was crushed by the Royal Train in 1901.
The envelope it came in (not contemporary to the coin) mentions that the Royal Train was in Niagara Falls (the town, not in the water) on that day in 1901. It carried the Duke and Dutchess, later to be King George V and Queen Mary.
As with most all of these sorts of things, provenance is a little challenging and all you can really do is judge all the characteristics on their merits.
