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

Medieval copper alloy French jetton dating to AD 1380 to 1450. Crown / triple stranded cross flueretty type with obverse legend ENVIE AMOVR REO. The type is broadly paralleld by Mitchiner (1988) on pages 179-181 but the exact design and legend are not included by him. DOR-865675 on this database appears to be of exactly the same obverse type as this but the reverse varies in the marks in the quarters and spandrels.
