Two variants of the Sporrong seal
« on: August 03, 2019, 03:59:53 PM »
As a fellow contributor on WoT put it, the best way to add token variants to your collection is to go through your duplicates. Here are two common amusement tokens from Liseberg. On the left the arms are striped, on the right they are not. I vaguely remember having read about this before. However, on the left, it says C.C at 9 o'clock, while on the right, the text is C.C. (extra dot). Maybe a filled die - but I see no sign of ghosting - or maybe a little error that got corrected with the next order. Does anyone have a striped arms with the second dot, not necessarily a Liseberg token?

You are right and I hadn't. Plenty of striped arms there, but none have the second dot missing, though there are variants with first dot or both dots missing, so it ain't a filled die. New variety!
