No luck searching for this one. It appears ZINGG is a family name with the double G.

There is (or was) a Zingg's Restaurant in Hamburg that issued tokens. See: S. Grossmann, T. Krawinkel, K. Scjultz, Marken und Zeichen der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg (2016).  These are quite different tokens however (note the inverted Z!)

Thank you very much, dear Henk!
So it isn't a Unidentified token.

It's interesting that denomination 25 & 30 are absent in the book.

Zingg is a family name, but it does not follow logically that all people called Zingg live in Hamburg. The decoration look rather Swiss or Austrian, not Northern German.

More probably, that it's a token of Zingg's Restaurant in Hamburg.
It will be a main version,
before someone demonstrate same tokens of other Zingg, who lived in Austria or may be  on the North Pole.  ;)

I do think it is not identified as the Hamburg ZINGG tokens are quite different from yours although the name is the same. Your token looks German to me although it could easily be from another country.

I found another token with the name ZINGG, but from the USA, listed on numista: Token - W. M. Zingg California Billiard - * Tokens * ? Numista
Two other varieties of this token and still another one can be found on: TokenCatalog.com

The Swiss transport company was established in 1950, but the decoration looks more like 1920 or so. Good timing for the parents of the transporter ZINGG. Hadn't thought of the US. Interesting option.
