Wood #13: curupay, from South America. Just found and bought this. It's a 100th anniversary medal for Argentina.

There's also an advertising(?) token out there right now made of zirconium, but as it doesn't look any different from your generic white metal so I'm passing on that one.


Decided to get one of these at last. It's an advertising token at best and barely counts as numismatics but whatever.




The guy has one more at the moment.

Swedish medal created for the Stockholm expo of 1897. Unlike others like the Conradty notgelds, this is probably literally crushed coal. I base that on two observations:

a) it says they are manufacturers of coal for electricity and chemistry

b) this has a sparkle that the others do not. That sparkle matches the luster you see on anthracite or similar. This is not easily visible on the pictures but the light specks that look like they might be dust are the lustrous bits.

Porcelain coins are sometimes grouped a such but actual materials used might be majolica and stoneware. There are also the celluloid badge-like 'kapselgeld' notgeld which are more 'coin' than 'note'. I'll try and upload some pictures.....

This has the consistency of oilcloth notgelds, and as oilcloth was commonly made of cotton, I'd like to think it's so. This goes with the corkwood nickels as essentially a municipal trade token.

Self note: have to study a bit more about the differences between Majolica and Stoneware.
