Looks like CNJ?  Couldn't find anything :-[
We should have a makers mark thread similar to that on the French government site.

Yes you're right ;D
See here for some other samples of his work and here.
Even the best get it wrong here.  On the same site are shown a number of tramway tokens - Charles Jourde.  Makers mark CHJ in a diamond.
And a different piece here
