This token is familiar territory. In the beginning, there was the Danish company Dagma. It had a significant relationship with Dutch company Douwe Egberts. More info here, scroll down to IMO5.

This token is an apparently young (judging from the Sporrong logo) offspring of their togetherness in Sweden. I already had tokens with the moccomat side also on the reverse in copper and brass and I'd filed them under B├╝rlow. Only now do I find that this place doesn't exist. So what is it? Their agent? The company token ordering guy? More important: in which town IS the HQ of Moccomat, Douwe Egberts or Sara Lee in Sweden?

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

This is probably the dealer for the vending machines in Sweden in 1971 at least, taken from the same list as the PNA adress ,Handelskalander 1971
