faema 24.1mm brass

The phone number (if that's what it is) is not in the Netherlands and the diameter does not match with a producer, importer or distributor. This diameter was used, but in the past, while FAEMA's tokens are more recent. Compare Kooij KB 19, 381, 414 and 466. Since FAEMA is a multi-national, this token is quite likely to have been intended for another country.

Farmer Joost Koppens had a problem. He was 58 and pensions hadn't been invented yet. His pension was his eldest son, Leo, who would succeed him and take care of him and his wife until they died. He had sent Leo to evening agricultural school and now he had received Leo's first report card by mail. Leo had done really well, except that the report card was from the wrong school! It came from a technical evening school. Joost was fuming.

His wife, Lucia, saved the day for Leo. She calmed down her husband, who agreed that Leo could continue his technical training on the condition that their second son would drop out of school and become his successor.

Soon after, Leo was in prison...

Read the rest of the story here. Amazing, what you can learn from coffee vending machine tokens.

I agree with jezuss. Not an error. My token is 22.7 plus. I just measured it again with electronic calliper.

I would rather call it an excessive remedy. I wonder how that Danish machine worked. If it didn't care too much about the diameter, it would invite people to use cheap foreign coins. A loss for the boss. There is a reason quite a few tokens were produced at the Utrecht mint and its neither weight requirements nor price ;)

I propose we make a note that diameter varies between 22.6 and 22.8.

Now, after an important contribution by jezuss, the list in the first six posts of this thread is up to date again. Don't be shy, if you see a rights-free picture of a coffee token let us know where it is or post it here.
