Post medieval cast copper alloy square weight from a German Goldgulden, a denomination in use from 1340-1806 AD. The weight was made by a known but as yet unnamed Antwerp maker in the 16th-17th century. It has an imperial orb on one side and the Hand of Antwerp with the makers initials on the other. It is 14.9 by 15.3mm and 1.8mm thick, it weighs 2.55 grams; as is typical with coin weights this is less than the full weight of this coin, 3.5g and 3.25g from 1559, due to corrosion and a tendancy to tariff weights to the lowest legal weight of the coin.
