the Palais Cafe bar old Shanghai tokens
« on: January 23, 2014, 07:11:43 AM »
Today, I would like to introduce shortly the Palais Cafe bar.

The Palais Cafe bar was a Night Club at 57 - 59 Avenue Edward V11 in Shanghai, China back in the 1930's - early 1940's. The 1940 Shanghai City Directory lists K. M. Koo as the Managing Director and he was probably the KMK listed on the reverse of the token.

The are 2 varieties of this token:

1) variety without 2 lines,

2) variety with 2 lines: one line below word "PALAIS" and the other line below word "CAFE"

Please pay attention on different style of writting letters on both tokens (2 different fonts)
