QuoteThe main feature is the figure 1 flat-top with short-squat or tall-thin.

Others have sloping-top 1...

The figure 1 with the flat top is usually described as a Roman one, while the sloping top one is described as the Arabic one.

Not so funny really!  ;)

Just spotted another, see  Reply #9 not sure what to call this kind of plating?

I've spent a while trying to find the correct word for the top of a 1.  Many thanks ::)

Image of £2 enhanced so that it can be seen a little more clearly.

I wonder at the target on the reverse...  ???

The catalogue [a1809] doesn't mention MUTUALITY but it probably does refer to this one.  ::)

The other two Fibre tokens # 1836-37 are rather oddly listed at 5d and 10d - I wonder if these should be decimal issue.

I think going by the others it's meant to be a P but something went very very wrong  ;D ;D
