Possibly ELLIOTT EDMINSON & OLNEY could have been involved in the manufacture or distribution of cutlery using this patented metal.

I have another series of tokens here that I have never been able to satisfactorily explain. W. B. Andrews & Co. Dudley England Arguroid Silver Registered WM 30mm. Various reverses are 6d, 1/-, 2/- and 2/6 all with the numbers 1 to 4 included. These are seen more often in Australia and New Zealand rather than England although
very scarce here too. The use of 'England' on the token implies it was for use in the colonies. Apparently this arguroid silver was used for cutlery.

Mal, I recently picked up a similar token from a collector in Italy.  The denomination is  2 1/6.    Did you ever find any more information on these tokens ?    Thanks,  Pete
