Another generic BPA. Not very informative...

Is it listed in Nesly?

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

Four varieties of this one are listed but I need more information to be more precise.

We can rule out the first one with centre hole.

Below the word "MUSIQUE" there is a diamond-shaped symbol bearing the incuse letters CHO.
I guess it is the logo of the manufacturer, but who is CHO?

malj1

It is more probably CHJ in diamond which is maker CH. Jourde Paris

This appears on others that I do have from France. My collection of these BPA's is here

Yes, Mal's right, most likely CHJ. The C is just about visible on my piece.

1905 81 key Marenghi Organ playing Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. Organ part of Bill Nunn's collection: www.skyrockfarm.com

Not coin operated but A magnificent machine. I believe its the same machine I saw at Lord Montague's National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Hampshire.

He had two tokens for admission, adult and child.

I noticed "Londres" on the decoration. Street organs still ply the streets of Amsterdam (at least in the tourist season, which runs from March to January :)). I am surprised to hear how much closer to a church organ a street organ sounds when played indoors.

I remember once seeing a barrel organ in Amsterdam but I was there only a couple of days.
