2.  Pobjoy Bi-metallic Paul Baker, UK

There is a Pobjoy Mint bi-metallic piece from a long time ago for the Queens Award for Export (or similar) - I have several pieces of it.  All are the same.  I do not ever remember seeing an image of the similar Krause Publications; Pobjoy Mint bi-metallic piece.  But I must have seen it listed in TWOB.

Does anyone have one of these already?

One for auction at;

How scarce is this piece?

3. Bi-metallic Canadian Merchant’s Token…by Jack Hepler, USA

Carl Beny emigrated from Germany in 1897; first located in United States where in 1900, he married Maria Bibiana Hefner.  The Beny family moved to Irvine, Alberta Canada in1905 where Mr. Beny homesteaded and operated a general store; later he added an implement and automobile sub-dealership. In 1919, Carl Beny founded Beny Motors.  The first store, a wooden structure burned two years after it was built.  Mr. Beny rebuilt the store of bricks about 1908.  It was probably in this store that the merchants tokens were used.  This token was on display at the Currency Museum in Ottawa Canada.
