That a new one!  :'( [an order placed here for at least two more] I wonder how many other French examples exist.

In the meantime I have acquired a better example of the Johnston's....

Just received my QNS magazine [Queensland] this has a variety of the token shown above.

BOVRIL / LE PRODUIT GARANTI DES MEILLEUXS / BOEUFS EST LE

An X in the MEILLEUXS and two more words. The other side is normal but another to seek.  ::)

BOVRIL / LE PRODUIT GARANTI DES MEILLEUXS / BOEUFS EST LE

I think that was meant to read:
BOVRIL EST LE PRODUIT GARANTI DES MEILLEUXS BOEUFS - Bovril is the product that is guaranteed to be from the best cattle. The X is a spelling error, taken together with the clumsy division of the words in the legend it seems to indicate that the token was produced in the UK. My guess is the errors and clumsiness were eventually pointed out to the Bovril people, so this token would be harder to find.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Yes that does sound most plausible.   ::)

redwine took over an hour to find one so its a little scarce.  >:D

It's very scarce and I doubt you'll find another  >:D
10p says, you don't find one! ;)

Here's one I made earlier  ;D
I've managed to age it, clean it and add a bit of verdigris.  I'm good  8)
I had to make up the other side  :o
Might have been found in Belgium, so I reckon it's Belgian  ;)

Well done. Much better than Mal's piece in reply#18. Just wondering if they already had colour coins at that time and not black and white only. ;)

I was looking in Jetons & Medailles Publicitaires Francais for something else and found to my surprise an entry for Bovril 8)
Apparently there is another version of this (below) out there.
Different size of "-- . --" above and below Bovril - 4.5 or 6mm.

I had to work on that image to make it readable.  :o  It looks familiar...

I can't see any difference to that in Reply 4 I guess we need to measure...
