8 posts in this topic

Folks, I have had this piece for over 40 years. I have been collecting since I was 10, about 50 years now.

I have taken this coin to a number of people, a couple of them foreign coin specialist. One guy still have pictures and is still looking to identify it.

Then I got the idea to post is here and let everyone have a shot.

I really don't know what it is. I googled it etc. No clue.

Any ideas? Please let me know your source if you know what it is. I would like to read about it and its background also.

 I have 3 ideas but not 100% 1. a Britos Bus/ transportation token 2. A Cuban Casino token 3. A Britos Cuban good luck token as for age I am unsure could be anywhere between 1909 and C. 50's-60's? Like I said I'm not 100% but this is what it appears to be to me. I'm pretty confident in it being Cuban However there is a Britos Transportation bus service in Southern California,  I personally believe it to be vintage Cuban. I Hope this Helps!

Thank you, I will start looking in that direction. Never pictured it as Cuban, thoughts from the experts were Greek or British.

It could quite possibly be British as Britos is known in that part of the world as well! As for counterfeit I believe it to be Genuine simply because if someone is going to counterfeit a coin or token I believe they would spend their time counterfeiting a more valuable coin and not yours so I do believe it is authentic! I am not an expert however I have been collecting and studying for quite a long time. Hope this helps you in your research.

My oppinion still is that it is Cuban. As for counterfeit I believe it to be Genuine simply because if someone is going to counterfeit a coin or token I believe they would spend their time counterfeiting a more valuable or easier coin such as silver as yours looks bronze and it is very tough to work with as it is Harder than Silver making silver easier to work with, so I do believe it is authentic! I am not an expert however I have been collecting and studying for quite a long time but this is just my opinion and mine alone. I do Hope this helps you in your research and helps point you in the right direction! Good Luck!

This coin is not what it seems to be. It is token for societies such as the secret kind that has several meanings. The reason you haven’t found this specific coin exactly is because it’s not a public coin. Take the 3 off the bottom & circle it in the triangle then place the horseshoe pointed right in the middle. These kind of symbols are everywhere but only understood by those who pay attention. & its definitely not a heart, because an upside down pyramid does represent women, but then the horseshoe would be upside down. 

The root word Britos modernly means someone from Great Britain, but in Aramaic it means a wild hog/beast. You’d be surprised how many live in this world of its own. Interesting meaning though. Before WW2 similar were found and this one has a 3 and looks rather old. If you research, you’ll find this true. The group that I know of in the South that plus the game as I call it use horseshoes mostly. David Duke.... 

 

i hope this this helped any at all.

I swear to you, as far as their opinions go, that symbol is not generic or natural to any culture & I’ve been to Cuba as a missionary. I would further tread carefully about the coin. It does have a specific meaning & it’s been playing out for millennia. Keep that picture in your mind & start paying attention to symbols & you’ll notice it everywhere. It’s not even indigenous to our culture, but look at the original layout of Washington DC. The name on the map was Rome. & the patriarch of freedom/liberty is an exact Roman match of the patriarch of the goddess Fortunate, Janus, Jupiter, or in their meaning Love. Exact match and almost exact match of Greek goddess Ishtar. goddess of fertility thus Easter holiday for us. Tied in with the Bohemians and their secret society.... food for thought.
