A post-medieval copper-alloy Nuremberg rose/orb jetton, dating to the period AD 1500-1600. The obverse is also mostly indiscernible, though the faint outline of the three crowns, alternately with three lis, arranged centrifugally around a central rose can be seen. On the reverse, there is an imperial orb surmounted by a cross patty, within a tressure with three main arches. Both legends are illegible.
