Austrian 'good for' Token
« on: March 27, 2008, 12:14:47 AM »
Seems to be a drink token.  It is a chunk of Copper, 27mm, lettering is incuse and it has no rims.
Pretty cheaply made looks like.  It says 25 TIEGEL EIBISWAL  and the last letter D is mostly missing off the edge of the planchet.


Eibiswald is a municipality in the district of Deutschlandsberg in Styria, Austria.
Tiegel...wonder if this is that http://www.tiegelgmbh.de/

If it's an Austrian beer token I don't see the connection with a German company that makes heating installations today. It's more likely to be a family name. The beer tokens are very difficult to identify in general, as the issuers were almost by definition small tradesmen, whose shops have disappeared long ago.
