Nice looking token.
They really didn't want to pay out in cash on this one!
Interesting. I wonder what the skill was.
I have seen either this style or close to it awarded for games of skill at the old time arcades, Skee-ball etc instead of paper tickets. Of course as the token wore out,lost removed the paper tickets and the dispensing mechs would have been cheaper than replacing the tokens. Although this one is in the transit style token and could be from the old style fruit,gum slot machines instead of nickles.
local hospital parking token blank reverse
Nice parking token. Another transportation goodie.
Dual purpose arcade and lucky day token
I like that. Nice pocket piece.
old style security phone token
Nice token. I recall using something similar when I did a project in Milan a number of years ago. I still have a few around somewhere.
You wouldn't be referring to this kind.
was my next one for tomorrow!
I do recall the telephone tokens from Italy. We also had coffee machine tokens that had a crossed line down he middle and a cup of coffee on them. Have a few of those somewhere. Good coffee!!!
We had a token like the first one that you displayed that we had to use to get into the parking garage of the IBM facility we were working at.
As I understand it, they use the security tokens since the same sized coins are worth a lot less than the cost of the call and some phones you can use the coins but it takes more of them.
Nice State token.
I've never seen a state commemorative like that!
They seem to have changed direction in the design of them after the late 60's I have a couple state and city tokens that are quite nice and have posted them before. It was a hanger on from the fifties and the atomic age I think
12 step coin from local hospital
nice sample..you can make a decent collection of these tokens.
Yes this is the second or thrid one that I have picked up in buys from the LCS!
A souvenir of the opening of the downtown bank main building in 1971. The bank was swallowed by Chase years ago, what I find interesting is the helicopter above the bank!
