Pallis
« on: August 23, 2012, 10:33:52 PM »
It looked somewhat familiar, but I couldn't find it. Bronzed (magnetic), 4.5 gram,23.1 mm, both sides are the same. Below the star is MEKA.

Meka is a Danish advertising and medal engraving company. So we are part way there.

This spinner is listed under Copenhagen here.

MEKA / EMBLEMER / BE 5076 / FREDERIKSSUNDSVEJ 274

 reklame- og metalvarefabrikken MEKA made in the 1950 most of all the jetons for transport ( city transport ) pretty much all the work place restaurants ( cantina  ) in all of Denmark as well for coin operated washing machines , there are currently still several companies with the name Pallis in Denmark and of course people with that name ( Family name ) so my guess is that it has been a soda / food token
last but not least there has also been a Tivoli ( Pallis Tivoli , but it would still be for food / entertainment such as bots-autotjes or what ever those things are named in English

Denmark seems a pretty good guess. If so, we'd be looking at a 25 Ýre piece, which fits with say the early 1950s. All Danish tokens seem to end up being from Tivoli and indeed, I found hits enough Googling pallis tivoli, but no star...
