Z. N. token with denomination 5. Any clues?
« on: April 17, 2017, 08:18:56 PM »
It's been offered locally, from a collection of late 19th and early 20th century tokens from all over Austria-Hungary, but also Germany and Italy. I don't have detailed German literature on wertmarken, googling didn't help in German, Italian or English.

Any info? Thanks.

German-language, Slavic or Hungarian seem much more likely than Italian - Z is much commoner in those languages as an initial letter than in Italian.

Here is a very similar one taken from eBay today; the date 1914/15 may help.

Also has the identical 5
