The WERTH-MARK(E) series was a generic and anonymous issue sold to all comers. The idea was to mark them with the name of an owner or establishment. Some were, many were not. Your 15 and 25 were probably marked by the same punch. You will probably never know if T was an initial of a name, the name of a caf or something else.

That "T" - token could be a token for anything. If it was a brewery, check also "Thaller" and "Tucher".
