Yes they are very elusive, I'm pinning my hopes on scroggs finding the images in his auction catalogue when he returns.

This token currently appearing on eBay bares the same reverse as the 500 öre token mentioned above.

It looks massive. Do they give size or weight?

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

 The Swedish American Line 500 token is 32mm square, no doubt this is the same. measurements taken from Smith.

The reverse of those 500 öre Sporrong tokens is just the standard reverse used on all of their series of "valörpolletter" (= denominated tokens) from 1 öre to 5 kronor. The identifying feature is on the other side, namely the Svenska Amerika Linien logo on scroggs's link and the JG on Malcolm's picture. Some years ago, the Swedish Token Society published a list, researched from Sporrong's archive, of the known letter combinations and denominations for this series. JG is known to exist (but interestingly the 500 denomination is not given) but it isn't (or wasn't then) known who ordered or used it.
