This one is elsewhere on this forum without result as far as I recall.

The size 22.5mm suggests it may be a coffee token.

Yes, metal and diameter make it a suitable coffee token, except that it looks too modern and it's not listed as such. My best guess is a Dutch gaming token. See Kooij AS 145 for a token with the initials VE and a legend that means GOOD FOR A FREE GAME ONLY.

How does one search for an image without a legend? I'm sure I have seen this on WoC recently but no amount of searching can locate it.

consimilar Brass 22.2mm

Does the arrow signify transport ? or put it in a machine slot ???

Couldn't locate it either. Perhaps you were thinking of a PE (Phonographic Equipment) token?

I thought I had read a VE suggestion.

I do have most of the PE tokens and don't know of any of theirs without the initials PE
