I would suggest WW2 period is more likely as they appear to copy the later token series showing the building across the top of the design.

Good point, Malcolm, but in that case, the token should be plastic, rather than fibre.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Just to throw a spanner into the works!

I have just acquired two rather unusual denominations: 5d and 10d both in aluminium, 22mm and 32mm respectively.

I think these two above are intended as decimals as here is the similar 50 without either the P or a D to indicate denomination.

A penny token in zinc with central hole (this is correctly punched by machine - not drilled)

There is a little lip on the denomination side around the hole, that shows that extra metal was pushed onto the token. That would normally not have happened if the hole were punched professionally (compare any non-error holed coin), but it is perfectly normal if the hole was drilled.

Its definitely punched and not drilled. I do know about such things from a previous life.

Yes a P on the 50 but not on these two: 5d and 10d in Reply #32 where they seem to be having a problem with the changeover to decimals.
