Note: We were informed with proper documentation that this token is from GUATEMALA not Peru. Z & N stands for "Zurcher y Nelson," owners of several fincas in Guatemala and a company of steamships that transported coffee from Guatemala. There is some documentation that mentions a steamship from possibly this same company named "Peru," so probably the confusion started with this. The hacienda was located in San Francisco Zapotitlán , Suchitepéquez.
