Quote from: brandm24 on September 03, 2020, 02:02:31 PMThis is an interesting token that I'd like help identifying.The only thing I found was a vague reference to a company called Bell Fruit Games in Nottingham. Apparently they were manufacturers of gaming machines or vending machines. If this is the issuer it would be a token used in their machines?The token measures 21.5 mm and weighs 4.5 g and is brass. Any help would be appreciated.Bruce

Quote from: malj1 on February 09, 2014, 05:26:42 AMHere is a selection of the rare Bell-Fruit jackpot tokens.All are round brass except top centre one in Cu-Ni. All are 25mm except top right at 21mm.These range through 4/-, 5/-, £2-0-0, £4.10.0 and £5-0-0They are always found holed which could suggest some kind of filing system when not in use, I.E. when returned to the cashier when claiming prize.
Quote from: africancoins on December 30, 2021, 11:30:25 PMI have two pieces of Hayes-49.66 and they both have the lines to the field on each side. The direction of the lines on my two pieces and the one you have shown are all the same, downwards on one side and that certain angle on the other side. They are not perfectly parallel lines. The lettering is a bit thicker on the pieces with the lines and this is likely the reason why the loops in each "B" are slightly smaller on the pieces with the lines to the field.That observation suggests a lack of polishing process for the dies resulted in the lines in the field.I would consider your pair as being two varieties of type "Hayes-49.66".Thanks Mr Paul Baker
