Here's a variant with J M instead of L. The clover leaf is clearly the same style as in yours (though slightly larger in proportion to the planchet and with a finer stem), and is distinctly different from the other two at the start of this thread, and from the Chinese one you mentioned here.

Brass, 21,5 mm, 4,42 g

That is a very interesting addition that I have not seen before. It is not listed in British Machine Tokens either but of course could well be from elsewhere, presumably you found it in Sweden?

I shall have to keep a closer eye on these clovers. These two on this page are much closer in style to the Chinese one mentioned.

I acquired it in a lot on Tradera from a Swedish seller, but the lot included a number of definitely non-Swedish tokens.
