Fogo island & Change islands ferry token
« on: May 12, 2020, 02:49:43 PM »
I found an interesting token. He points to four islands at once:

1. Newfoundland island
2. Bell island
3. Fogo island
4. Change islands

I wonder - is this a real badge or fantasy? Because I never met him anywhere at auctions, or in catalogs:

Damen shipyards is the largest remaining ship builder in the Netherlands. It is likely that they have commissioned this as a clever advertising medal, disguised as souvenir for the guests at the start of construction of the ferries. This must have been an important order, probably for multiple ships, for them.
