Three older Tokens
The “Standard Catalog of World Coins” (KP Books, 38th edition, 2011) lists quite a number of Notgeld pieces dated 1920 to 1921, and issued by a total of four different Chambres of Commerce. Here are three examples.

A Casino Token
Token of "100 CFA" from "Casino Terrou Bi" in Dakar, Senegal.
Perhaps at least as hard to come by as the
Senegal notgeld tokens, but not at all as sought after - this is the
only Senegal casino token type I am aware of. The obverse reads “casino
terrou bi” / “100” / “CFA”, with "CFA" being for the denomination "100
Francs CFA", Senegal uses the West African CFA Franc. The reverse reads
“casino terrou bi” and below this legend there is a depiction of the
waves of the sea and the sun."Casino Terrou Bi" is in Dakar, the
capital city of Senegal. The token has a diameter of 26mm and would
seem to be made from Aluminium-Bronze. Going by the various features of
the tokens, it would seem likely that it was in use somewhere around 5
to 20 years ago.
