Type 3 - Smaller arms, thinner small headed leopards, shield 4.1mm wide, left leopard tail points down, scroll cruder with dot above A and P

The Type 1 tokens are the Type 3 Tramway tokens with department name changed to TRANSPORT. Like the tramway tokens they are made from celluloid.
The Type 2 token and Type 3 tokens are of later issue and are made with a more modern plastic and injection moulded. Both obverses were used with the decimal issue ACT tokens.
