« on: April 14, 2019, 10:30:25 PM »
who recognizes the monogram ?

it looks like a seal for some machine.

deze garantie geldt voor alle constructie fouten.
this guarantee is for al construction errors.

the seal is about 44 mm.

Perhaps Johan de Witt?

That same logo is also on the coffee token that we don't yet have.

I was aware that the logo on the token was different. However:
  • There's no law that prohibits a change of logo. It even makes sense after a takeover or change of mission. Note that the style of the building proves the logo was used after the Philips takeover.
  • There are a limited number of machinery producers in the Netherlands.
  • Johan de Witt fits and I can't think of another, let alone a better solution.
  • Note the word "Perhaps" in my previous post
Thank you for the pic of the building with the logo. I will use it on WoT when the rights situation is clear. >:D Even more thanks for the picture of the token.
