    Since the days of ancient Rome when a token-operated device dispensed water, tokens have been used to operate machines.

    A number of early coin operated machines used tokens.

    Their use started in the late 1800's as casino token or gaming tokens and continues today in the form of Arcade tokens. Some of the early machines that used amusement tokens included slot machines, pinball machines, cigar vending machines and musical instruments.

    Only a very few Amusement Tokens can be attributed to Louisiana such as the "Alma Machine Co." pictured below. Most were provided by the machine manufacturer's who were located in San Francisco, Chicago or Detroit. Usually their name or the machine name appeared on the token.
