Ocean Beach South Shields Tokens
« on: February 17, 2021, 03:29:54 PM »
Hi Guys

I have started to put together a collection of tokens from the Ocean Beach Fun Fair South Shields. So far I have 4 varieties:
 
No.1) 32mm Dia - 2mm Thick - smooth edge - Bronze -  Description:  'OCEAN BEACH' arched at the top and 'SOUTH SHIELDS' at the bottom of the token, with a small anchor pictured at the right-most and left-most area, and a picture of a fair-ground at the centre with people.
No.2) 22.8mm Dia - 1.6 mm Thick - smooth edge - Bronze - Description as above no 1- without people
No.3) 22.8mm Dia - 1.6 mm Thick - smooth edge - Bronze - Description as above no 1 - with crude people and design
No.4) 22.8mm Dia - 1.6 mm Thick - smooth edge - Bronze - Description as above no.1 - with well defined people and design also makers initials under Right hand anchor on one side - RWM

I have also noted a silver type, unsure if it is steel or cupronickle as yet as I am purchasing it as part of a bulk deal.
I would be really interested to see if anyone has any other types or varieties.

Thanks

I have:

No.1) 32mm Dia - 2mm Thick - smooth edge - Brass -  Description:  'OCEAN BEACH' arched at the top and 'SOUTH SHIELDS' at the bottom of the token, with a small anchor pictured at the right-most and left-most area, and a picture of a fair-ground at the centre with people.

No.3) 22.8mm Dia - 1.6 mm Thick - smooth edge - Brass - Description as above no 1 - with crude people and design
No.4) 22.8mm Dia - 1.6 mm Thick - smooth edge - Brass - Description as above no.1 - with well defined people and design also makers initials under Right hand anchor on one side - RWM

and
20.3mm Dia - 1.8 mm Thick - smooth edge - nickel plated brass - with people and SHEILDS incorrectly spelt.

I don't agree with the description bronze!

Happy to stand corrected Malcolm. To be honest it was just for colour difference. Will change to Brass on my index.
Bronze coinage is my main collecting field so just a knee jerk reaction.

Thanks
