Indonesia 1890 $1 Brass Token HESSA UNTERNEHMUNG

***Another $1 uniface brass German token from Indonesia issue by Hessa Unternehmung but it's dated 1890 and with an unusual shape of a pentagon.
I wonder why the issuers of these various German tokens in Sumatera, Indonesia during those days of yore took the hassle of creating tokens of diverse shapes & sizes.
This is the first time I have seen one in a pentagonal shape.
Price = US$100
