Müller of Braunschweig (KWM)
« on: January 27, 2013, 06:34:38 PM »
And now, fo something different, here is a token for the stuff sold by Karl W. Müller of Braunschweig. Münzprüfer (literally: coin tester) sounds official, But Karl W. is really in the business of sorting and counting coins, providing change for banknotes, coin-operated locks and lockers and metallic tokens.

The Münzprüfer tokens come in different sizes. Both sides are the same.

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

I have several different tokens of KWM. Some of these are listed in the British Machine Tokens catalogue under Hayes 217. et al. as they are used in several locations in the UK for coin meters etc.

Here is a 26mm from that KWM page where the name is in full: Karl W. Müller and reverse KWM Münzprüfer Braunschweig.

See the link above that Figleaf gave, reply # 1, to see several sizes of these KWM tokens. The larger ones were used in coin meters while I believe this smaller one was used for coffee machines.

They are all stock tokens for use in various coin operated equipment.
