Can anybody help me with this token, please?
Is Tanger the name of the bar or the name of its place?
Exists a Spanish tokens catalogue?

Best regards, Afrasi


Its a bar in Madrid  named Tangier. I found another value, a 25 cents.

Have a look at  my tokens and my banknotes.


Many thanks! So it doesn't belong to Africa  :'( , but it's still a very interesting piece of history  :D !


Agreed. I would date this token 1900-1939 (the lighted tubes point to the later part of that period.) The first automatic buffets were not just novelties and labour-saving devices. They were thought of as natural successors of traditional restaurants, using the latest technology. See how they were introduced in London here.
