I cannot find any reason for the production of these tokens with florets in 1846 other than the opening of the Rodney or the addition of a new hall in 1847. I had a thought that they might have been used to differentiate the tokens as opposed to tokens without the florets. Ones with one night and the next night ones without. This way they would be able to tell if they were used on the night they were issued.
It is not online. The book, which I had never heard of before, came up on e-bay earlier this year, MG is the Montague guest collection in th eBritish museum F is collection of Dr freudenthal, British museum M is On manuscript list of collection of John macmillan, the present position of the collection is (in 1978) unknown B is dept Archeology, Birm Museum & Art Gallery F is "from other transient lists" - not very helpful I think BFHL must refer to several source ( not clear): B as dept Archeology, Birm Museum & Art Gallery F is "from other transient lists" H is in present collection of present compiler (R.N.P.Hawkins) L - no idea as it is not listed That's the best I can do I'm afraid
