1. A new WBCC Martin Peeters, WBCC Focal Point
We have a new member. Let me introduce him to you:

2. Bi-metallic amusement Cliff Anderson, USA
This Bi-metallic amusement token features the initials "RS" in the middle of a sunburst, and the inscriptions "AMUSEMENT HALL" and "The Rising Sun".
Though it seems to be an arcade token of some sort, I cannot otherwise describe the origin of the token. Can any other WBCC member recognize this item?

Look at:


you can see the Bi-metallic 20 and 100 Dinar 2007 (1428) from Algeria

In Ebay:
an Isle Of Man 1/4 Noble 1995 of Platinum and Gold and if you look carefully it is off-centre to.
