5. Bi-metallic Parking Token from the US….by Jack helper, USA
Here are the pictures of the Bi-metallic Carwash tokens I found in Washington last week including the Carwash Palace I reported earlier.

I searched for information about Mr. Sudsy Carwash and have found there are five locations in Washington State.

There are businesses in Kent, Milton, Puyallup, Sumner and maybe Seattle, Washington. I have not been able to find any more locations with this name. They all appear to be Washington based carwashes.

I found a reference to Mister Sudsy Carwash but they are in North Carolina and probably not part of the same group.
