Belgium (Ghent or Gent); Flemish region. OB: "Door Samenwerking Tot Verheffing Der Werkende Klasse" is: 'By Working Together to Uplift the Working Class'. Has a counterstamp (?, dragon w/crown on it's back, or SMv) below. Two center figures, top one is female; the one below appears to hold a book or plaque that might say "Mai", for the traditional May 1 revolutionary movement day.
Rx: "Warder Vijf Frank" is 'Value 5 Frank'. "VOORUIT" on the center banner means 'FORWARD!' (just like the 2nd election campaign slogan of Barrack H. Obama).
Bread Token or a type of ration card. This is a medal of the socialist consumer organization (or cooperative) "Forward" (1880-1970), in 1880, first as a cooperative bakery "Come On". These also appear with the date 1921, hence this repunched 8 over 1.
Vooruit (Dutch: Kunstencentrum Vooruit,[a] lit. 'Forward Arts Centre') is an historic complex in Ghent, Belgium. Vooruit was originally the festival and art center of the Ghent-based labor movement, with a ballroom, cinema, theater, etc. It is now mainly used for concerts and other cultural events.
Vooruit was designed by Ferdinand Dierkens and built between 1911 and 1914 and became a symbol of the socialist movement in the interwar period. The building is named after the socialist consumer organization (or cooperative) Vooruit ("Forward") (1891-1970), supported by Edward Anseele, to protect workers against the instability of capitalism. There workers could eat, drink and enjoy culture at affordable costs.
