Bakery tokens

Bakeries sold tokens, often at a discount, in large centres with home delivery as a way of encouragingcustomers and securing payment in advance, while in smaller centres they were distributed in part payment to suppliers.

Denominations included 1 loaf and 2 loaf. The unusual denomination of half a loaf exist because, before the advent of sliced bread in the 1930s, loaves were baked in a shape that could be easily divided in half.
