Today the WoT Beverly page was completed with the addition of the 2/- (two shillings) and 2/6 (two shillings and sixpence) tokens.

...unless of course a 1 (one pound) token should surface.

A thing of beauty, Malcolm! I know firsthand how difficult it is to get a long series of tokens complete. Often, there is no catalogue, they are not often offered and when they are, they come in humongous lots with few interesting pieces. Even getting the pictures is a difficult process. That's where these pages offer relief and reliability. Thank you for your efforts,.

Wow! That's the first ha'penny in this thread. There's none on WoT and it's not round, like the other low values. The question is now whether it's made before the link-up of Beverly and Divi or after the shebang became convoluted with Victoria.

Since Divi, as part of Victoria, ended up as part of Allied Breweries, that could explain the "national" and not mentioning wine, as Allied Breweries is a corporate giant where wine is likely to be a tiny part of the turnover. Allied Breweries would, step by step, have used Victoria's real estate to sell the largest possible share of their product portfolio, perhaps maintaining Beverly/Divi's loyalty discount scheme in the beginning.

What surprises me more is the denomination. Beverly apparently didn't need a ha'penny, so why would Allied Breweries need it?
