I now have the nickel plated iron 20.5mm token (without people)

Very Envious Mal, the only one I need too. Anyone with any spares I am happy to swap.  ;D



So another one to add to the collection. Dropped off today as a gift from a friend  ;D

"OCEAN  BEACH" "SOUTH SHIELDS" spaced by an anchor either side, fair ground scene in centre, no people; coinsimilar

Material: Red Plastic
Dia: 31.6mm
Thk: 3.1mm
Wt: 1.9g

Still looking for the smaller magnetic one to finish my set...



I have always been curious why these tokens were moved from "Other Tokens Used For Payments". These tokens where from my knowledge and previous use, never used in any machines. They were used as payment for rides within Ocean Beach Amusement Park. I was told when they were first moved it was because they were also used in machines, but that simply wasn't the case. These are now no longer in use and the vendors have moved to a digital system. Not trying to cause aggraviation, just looking for some clarity. Are they here purely as a catch all, etc...
