Once more, I am struck by how this token is like contemporary bus tokens. I guess there were only a few manufacturers of such tokens and they freely mixed dies, like their predecessors in London, Birmingham, Paris, Nuremberg... Plus ça change, plus ça reste la même chose.

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