Tokens from Öland don't surprise me

Tell me, what are the other tokens for Öland island? For example, such as for the island of Gotland?

FosseWay, I found a token and a story about shipments that are not listed on the ferry list. Perhaps this is also interesting.

Between 1923 and 1972 the company operated boat traffic between Saltholmen, Stora Asperö, Brännö and Stora Förö. Charles Ericksson got the idea for tokens while traveling in the US and ordered his tokens from Meyer & Wenthe Co in Chicago. 2000 tokens of each of the first two types were ordered. In 1936 another 2000 "whole tickets" were ordered, but this time from Sporrong. In 1937, the use of pointers ceased.

The letter A & B & S

Asperö island &
Brännö island &
Stora Förö island

Charles Ericksson's archipelago boats . ½ ticket, 1 ticket (2 different). White metal. Used 1935-1937.

Yes, those are reasonably common. I have the one you show (the "reprint", done by Sporrong). These islands, and others in the same group, are the closest inhabited islands to me. If I climb up the hill behind my house I can see them.

It is interesting.
Do you know about the existence of any tokens, or commercial tokens, or medals & jetons/medallions of any type, for Asperö island & Brännö island, and other neighboring islands. Sport medals maybe? Interested in everything that can relate to collecting and will look like numismatics .. or faleristics..

The letter H

Hamburgö – Wikipedia

Quote
Hamburgö Island is an island in the Kville parish in Tanum Municipality's southern archipelago, Bohuslän . The island forms the western shore along the strait through Hamburgsund. The strait is, where it is at its narrowest, barely 50 meters wide. Hamburgö Island is in the north-south direction almost five kilometers long.

A settlement on the island has been confined to a small town called Hamburgö . The island is connected to the mainland via a light ferry, the so-called Hamburgsundsleden . Hamburgsund's chapel is located just north of the island's ferry location.

I found on the site a page with tokens of this strait, but I could not understand how these tokens are connected with the island? :

I think there are one or two known tokens from Brännö, but I can't immediately recall them. You know about the ones from Styrsö already. I'm not aware of any for the other islands except for the Stora Förö holiday village that I mentioned a few weeks ago.

I don't generally collect medals, though I might make an exception for somewhere very close to home, so I'm less in the loop about what's out there.

Yes, the Ellös folkpark token is the only one I know of from Orust.

The hundskattemärken are dog tax tags. Each kommun (local municipality) issued some form of yearly receipt for the dog tax. Most, but I think not all, issued tags like the ones you show, to be attached to the dog's collar. As a result there is a huge range of these to collect. I've deliberately steered clear of them!
