Card Money- French Regime

"In the course of three decades researching Canadian history, I came across a document describing a land transaction of one of my husband’s ancestor Pierre-Charles Leduc. The quill-written notary document in antiquated French was dated 1719, and stipulated that the farmland was to be paid for in "card money". Once our Canadian family tree was firmly rooted in my mind, I turned my attention to investigating this early Canadian currency among several others."
