    If I remember correctly, Circus, TEC is a collector's organization for these pieces. Is that right and what so the initials stand for? Thanks.

    Saxon Mills-brass, M/A, 24mm, 4.6 grams This was a textile mill which is not particularly special in South Carolina. But I like the names Saxon and Spartanburg and also the color which is really dark toned brass more like the third image.

    As said above it is a Europe style security arcade token. Like the telephone and vending token, will only work in machines that have the proper spacing of slots same as the old security telephone tokens, introduced in 1910 by the Yale slot & Slug co. also called Geotz tokens after the founder of the company. used mostly in the Chicago area 1910 to 1944

The will only work in phones that have the same spacing of the slots.Single stores would sell tokens that only fit the phones in their locations.
