    Indiana gaming token

    I found kind of cool token yesterday. I've never found one with a hexagon hole in one before. I assume you can read it for yourself, but, if not, it says Silver King Novelty Co. Indianapolis Ind. on one side and "Machines Leased on Profit Sharing Basis" on the other. From what little info I've found, the company was supposed to have been in business from 1914 to 1930, and was in the vending and gaming machine business. If anyone can confirm that and supply any more info on what these tokens were actually used for, that would be great! I've seen a few other similar tokens on Tokencatalog.com, but, not exactly stamped like this one. Thanks.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I see four on tokencatalog that appear to be close to yours.

    21mm holed tokens were used in slot machines where the hole was used to sort tokens from nickels.
