Hotholes Token


Recommended Posts

Hotholes?? Anyone know anything about this??

 

Is this for some sort of an original sauna? It looks like an Indian thing on the pictorial side where you would go inside for the remedy of sitting in a rather hot place, possibly they were built over natural thermal vents? I'm sure I heard of something like this.

I swear my dad used to take us to church early on Sunday so that afterwards we could get the freshly baked hot rolls at the bakery next door.

 

Could someone please explain the asparagus reference, I'm extra thick today...

That sure looks like Hot Rolls to me and the paddle looks like a baker's paddle. I think asparagas refers to the image on the obverse, be it asparagas, a tree, or a sheaf of wheat.

An asparagus looks like the thing on the image side of the coin, above the poles crossed in a saltire.

OK, I get it. I love vegetables, except asparagas and lima beans.

 

Is is possible that the engraver misspelled HOT ROLLS as HOT ROLES? Or was he an aspiring actor being clever? :ninja:

I think back then you could spell things however you pleased, more or less ;)

 

Hmm not being clever but speaking of spelling, how do you spell asparagas? Hehe.. ;)
