    Adult entertainment tokens?

    Can anyone shed some light on these tokens? I've so far been able to find the larger one on Ebay, still no actual info as to who or when it was made. The smaller one I can't find anything on. Thanks in advance

    the heads I win--tails you lose---is a fairly common -bawdy place type novelity coin---theother is a bit odd ---I can't make out the wording other than --the "worlds greatest show place" ---a strip joint type term---on the back---and "avt" and " world center" and there is another word by her feet"" --on the front the nude girl W/ the musical note makes me think that a "old style bump & grind" strip joint or cat house was mostly likely close by were you found them--- can you tell me more about it? ivan

    The larger heads/tails token, or flipper, is one of the many Busty Betty varieties.

    Ivan, from the pic I can barely read Word Center, but that is it and I don't have the token with me, I'm at work. I can definately get a really good close up tonight and update this post.

    I believe the complete inscription surrounding the nude figure on the smaller, octagonal token is, "SHOW WORLD CENTER SAVE N.Y.C. 42 ST." This is a c. 1970's or later "peep show" token.

    about all those places on 42nd street are shut down ---now---peep show token --you drop "the house token" in a slot in a "private" booth and a sliding metal plate slides up for a bit of time showing the gal --who's normally nude--and waiting "behind the plexiglass" she then dances or whatever for you (depending on the "extra" tips $$$ you give her---it can be rather mild or wild show) often there were several "windows" set up for one dancer and she would "face" the highest bidder" while dancing or whatever
