An early vending machine token?

Looks like a 10 cent prize from a slot machine game.

The image on the token looks like a Clown or Allwin or some such machine rather than a vending machine. see this image for a similar discussion.

Societe Anonyme Francaise des Appareils Automatiques = SAFAA which is often seen today.

Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.

Yes, that's why I'm a bit confused :-[
SAFAA is generally regarded as vending machines.
But yes that is a flipper machine.
With a value, would suggest more of a prize.
A cross over piece?

I did find another similar with silvering.

Also mention should be made of the word LOGIQUES which does not appear with the later tokens.

logic
   
logique; adjective: logical, legitimate, rational.  ???

Been wondering about the word logique also. I would expect that appareils automatiques could execute a sequence of actions (e.g. gaming, vending, playing music), while appareils automatiques logiques could execute actions depending on at least one decision point (e.g. flight simulators, computers). Maybe the addition was idle boast and therefore removed later. Hype was not invented yesterday.

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

All very confusing  :-\  Many thanks for trying  ;)
And that was my query on numismatique  ;D
