A damaged post-medieval copper-alloy Nuremberg jetton probably of Hans Schultes I (active 1553-1584), dating to c. 1553-1560. Rose/orb type inscribed unclear legends, possibly the master's name on the obverse. Minted at Nuremberg. See Mitchiner (1988, 401-404)

The jetton measures 23.2 mm in diameter, has a thickness of 0.3 mm,and weighs 1.02 g. It is bent, with the edges folded over slightly on opposing sides of the circumference. The flan has been cracked slightly at these folds.

Mitchiner (1998, 400) suggests that jettons with 'wedge' initial marks are of Hans Schultes I and those with rose/orb designs probably date to the 1550s.
