6. Bi-metallic Token from Japan...from Bob Spender, USA
<>I have a bi-metallic token to report. I have reported a couple in the past. These are similar amusement tokens and I have attached a jpg scan of both. 
Obverse: Pachislo (around top edge) Kokura (around bottom edge) Glotv Kokura (across center between 7 stars above and 6 star below);
<>Reverse is the same.
The tokens are 25mm NB edge and 15.5 mm center. One token has a brass center the other is bronze center (darker, copper color) and the stars are slightly larger on this one. > The only point I am unsure about is the center logo word Glotv. Obviously a foreign word these tokens are used in Pachnko machines and usually come from Japan or Korea.
