Welcome to TNet & thanks for showing us your good luck piece. There's an earlier, slightly different example:
"A3. Good Luck Coin, bronze gold plated, 1933, 33 mm.
Obverse: horseshoe surrounding swastika and 4-leaf clover, flanked on either side by wishbone and rabbit foot
Legend: GOOD LUCK COIN/1889-1933
Reverse: gold seal with large "W" Logo and serially stamped number in the center
Legend: GOLD SEAL  AWARD
Note: The sculptural relief on the obverse of this coin may have been engraved by the same artist who engraved the reverse of coin #A1 and the obverse of coin #B1. The W logo looks familiar -- but the dates 1889-1933 mean nothing to me. Any idea what this is about? My copy of this coin was drilled for use as a pendant and the gold plating is nearly worn away. I would like to buy a better example, seeing as how this is the "LUCKY W" Archive and all. If you have one for sale, contact me at cat yronwode." 20th Century North American Good Luck Coins

These tokens were made for the Watling Gold Seal Award Slot Machine, made by (Watling Scale Company)Watling Manufacturing Company.
Antique Watling Slot Machines and Supplies
The one picture is of the Machine, the other is a close up of the token pictured on the machine. And the third is a decal for a Blue Seal Slot machine (to show the Watling "W" logo). If you google Watling swastika token or good luck token, you'll see examples of both of these.
