Some Comorien Tokens
Comoros 250 Franc slot machine token (scaled to about 210dpi)
First these three token of face value 50, 100 and
250 Francs as are used
(perhaps not presently - but seemingly much of the past 20 years) in
the gaming machines of the casinos at the Galawa
Beach Hotel and the Itsandra Hotel, both on Grande Comore (Ngazidja).
The three tokens all seem to be made from Aluminium-Bronze and are all
the sam colour - though the different lighting makes the "250" look a
little different in colour to the other two.

Secondly an example of one of a number of types of Comorien tokens
early in the 20th century (around 1920). The legends read
ANONYME DE LA GRAND COMORE” // “BON DE 25c REBOURSABLE”. These are not
cheap tokens, unlike some of the French emergency issues from around
