QUEBEC, Montreal P. O. Tremblay Numismatist Card Breton #606 ICCS MS-60 Certification # XER 259

 

Pierre Breton in his 1894, Illustrated History of Coins and Tokens relating to Canada notes that, "Mr. P. O. Tremblay, who is now 30 years of age, commenced the hardware business in 1886, in partnership with Mr. Mathieu, under the style of Mathieu & Tremblay. On the 1st of May, 1893, Tremblay continued the business alone, at the old stand on Notre Dame Street. He became interested in Numismatics about fifteen years ago, and is well thought of among his confreres. In 1892 he, desiring to make himself better known among collectors, had 225 of the coins above illustrated, struck. The dies engraved by C. Tison, have been destroyed. R. 2.
