JETTON

Unique ID: LVPL-7EA716

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

A copper-alloy Nuremberg jetton, post medieval in date (AD1500-1700). It is almost certainly a Rose and Orb jetton but it is too worn to identify further. The obverse depicts three crowns alternating with three lis arranged around a central rose. The reverse is not photographed but presumably depicted an Imperial orb surmounted by a cross patty within a three arched tressure. Both legends are illegible. The edges are very badly worn and damaged. The jetton is typical of Nuremberg jettons from the 16th century.
