Det Forenede Dampskibsselskab is the Danish shipping line better known today by its initials DFDS.

"Modtages ombord som betaling for 10 °re" = "Accepted on board as payment for 10 °re". The Dewey Music Cabinet referred to in English appears to be a kind of jukebox. I therefore guess that this is a jukebox token for use on DFDS's passenger ferries, e.g. between the UK and Scandinavia.

There was recently one for sale on Irish eBay.

An interesting ship on this token. I think it may be a paddle steamer, but the wheel is a bit worn.
