2. Bi-metallic Tokens……..by Pauk Baker, UK
Two Bi-metallic tokens seen on "Mercado Libre" by Mr Paul Baker
The other day I was looking through tokens on "Mercado Libre" a Latin American auction site. I came across two different bi-metallic tokens up for auction. The first piece - was a round token with Aluminium core and Bronze ring - with main legend "SISTE" - I think I have seen these before... http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-437717259-ficha-bimetalica-siste-sistema-de-estacionamiento-numerada-_JM

The second piece was a piece I do not remember seeing before. Legends - Obverse "ENTRETENIMIENTOS" / "WOREST" / "CASINOS" - Reverse "ENTRETENIMIENTOS" / "CASINOS" with star depicted centrally.

From the internet I could see that there is a Worest Casino in Asuncoin, Paraguay and perhaps that is the only casino with that name.
