No real question here just thought I'd share this parking token that a Doctors office gave my daughter to get her out of their parking lot. The gates were open when she left and never needed to use the token.
This parking lot is in Oshawa Ontario which was referred to as "Motor City" by many in the the past.
The token is not magnetic it weighs 5.6 grams and is 25mm in diameter.
The antique car on the front seems quite appropriate for the city of Oshawa but when I turned it over I was surprised to see the eagle, shield and stars which hints strongly of American.
Really a great looking token with cartwheel lustre it's hard to see the lustre because the pictures were taken with a filtered flash.
Of course all comments welcome.

Cheers, Bill

I am reasonably sure that the image of the car is not a modern PHEV.
Old style much better for a parking token.

It is probably a generic token, used to save money getting a specially designed one.
