Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete copper alloy post medieval jetton of uncertain issue, dating c.1550-1750AD.  This is a Rose/Orb type from the Nuremburg mint. The obverse has alternating crowns and lis arranged around a central 5-petalled rose.  Most of the legend is missing, damaged or illegible but appears to be in a Gothic script. The reverse has the Imperial Orb within a treasure of three arches.  There are three pairs of annulets around the tressure. The initial mark may be a crown.  The legend is likely to be fictitious.
