Glasgow Corporation issued a 6d/2½p token using the same obverse dies as the 2d, 3d and 4d. The 1p and 3p were issued using different, cruder dies with the same design type.

The 6d/2½p token was not included in the PCN, indicating that it was not issued by August 1972.

The 1p and 3p would have been issued from 1970 to possibly 1975

The type has a return to a thick top ribbon, more detail in the arms and larger arms. It was issued after 1973 and represents the last Glasgow Corporation Transport tokens issued, probably between 1975 about about 1978.
