These are Hard Times tokens that are a bit of a jumble. They're listed as a USA Hard Times token (Low #48; HT-204) but I believe they're struck for use in Canada as a BAS-CANADA token of Quebec. They were struck in Belleville, New Jersey by the "Belleville Boys" who are also credited with other HHT, particularly the ACS token for Liberia and a series of Brazilain counterfeits, etc. This crude piece reflects the quality of product of Belleville in 1837. Since I believe the ACS tokens of 'Liberia' (struck for fund raising in the USA) were actually struck by the US Mint in Philadelphia, this coin helps prove the point that they were incapable of striking the fine pieces of Liberia in 1833. Without proof, I still believe that, if they did strike Liberian tokens it was as counterfeits. DUSEAMAN BUTCHER is a botched attempt at creating a legend that was supposed to read D.U. SEAMAN - BUTCHER; perhaps a butcher in New York City.
