Boiler Room Token ?
« on: August 11, 2019, 12:22:57 AM »
I saw this token listed on eBay as a Boiler Room token on a Yuogoslavian steamship. No weights or dimension were given.

Does someone know anything about this token ? Before posting this, I did a search on Boiler Room tokens here on W of C and on Google search and came up empty.

Any info would be sincerely appreciated.

I have enlarged and enhanced the images so that they are readable.

Now maybe they can be translated to help identify. Yugoslavian doesn't seem right.

The language is Serbian. алата is tools and спп марка is SPP brand. Зајечар ложионица is Zajecar lodge, according to Google translate. Perhaps Zaječar branch? Zaječar is not on the sea. A priori, I would take this for a factory tool check.

With some help from google I think that this is a tool tag (алатна марка) from the train depot (ложионица) of the town Zaječar (Заjечар).

Google translate of ложионица (stokehold) without taking into account the rest of the token.


So far nothing about спп.

One of the things I find fascinating about this hobby is the attribution portion. Sometimes itís more fun figuring out what the token was used for and where than actually collecting the token.
