See also larger token of same issuer. Both listed in Dick Ford Collection (1995 Feb 23 Taisei-Baldwin-Gillio Auction#19 lot #272 part).

The first Token with 2 specimens from Shiran Cruse of equal weight and size are larger and heavier than Token with GA and S recorded in Pridmore #44. The second Token from Collection of Bob Lyall of UK matches Pridmore. The Last Token of equal weight and size to #44 does not have GA stamped, but has S stamped on reverse in same font and size.
