Great condition on the token....seems to be quite a few found in your neck of the woods there :thumbsup:
Actually great little items that have a story to tell with family interests :clapping:

Two nice finds.
Was 3d back then worth a pint or perhaps more ? Do like these specific self identifying items from our Social History.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.
