A very nice one and one I don' have, It is listed as Hayes 268 in Machine Tokens but has no other information there other that what it already says on the piece.

Very similar to Hayes 66. the Skeeball on the Palace Pier at Brighton and almost certainly from the same maker as this and the Delaney & Co., tokens all of which use the same reverse die.

I have yet to find further information on the SKEE ROLL tokens.

Yes I thought previously you had been referring to my web page here where it appears at bottom RHS; the Skeeball on the Palace Pier at Brighton is the one above that.

The Skee Roll is thought to be British and made by the Automatic Machine Co. UK.

The Californian 'Automatic Machine Co.' is thought to be in San Francisco, their reverses read 'Good for 5c in trade' with variants, metals etc. CA 760 AUT thru AVQ. in Video Arcade, Pinball, Slot Machine and other Amusement Tokens of North America, Alpert & Smith. 1984
