NUMISMATICS AND TEDDY BEARS: PEEK FREAN BISCUIT TOKEN

Inspired by our articles on the late Milt Friedberg's collecting
obsessions with currency and Teddy Bears, Philip Mernick of
London writes: "There is a UK advertising disc (aluminium, 1930s?)
for Peek Frean's Teddy Bear biscuits showing, naturally, a Teddy
Bear.  Peek Frean is a very well known London biscuit maker.  I
just happen to have the actual reverse die, showing aforementioned
bear, picked up from a flea market years ago.  The maker is Wright
& Son of Edgware. The maker's name also appears on the die but its
alignment is slightly different to that on my 'coin' indicating
the use of several dies."
