The slotted security tokens were used mostly in the Chicago area for telephones up to the 30's and 40's The could only be used in the phone in store that had the corresponding spaced bars in the coin slot.
These modern versions are from the RWM (Roger Williams mint)

They're nice, kinda reminds me of telephone tokens when I see them

Yes that what they started out as and were used into the late 30's according to Alpert and Elman book. They were done by the Yale Slot & Slug Co. great name he then went on to patent the scalloped edged one with the shaped hole in the center and some with a slot going to the central hole.
