A copper-alloy French (Tournai) stock jetton imitation of Royal type, dating to the Medieval date c. 1400-1500 AD. The obverse depicts a dolphin embowed, within a granulated inner circle similar to that illustrated in Barnard (1981, p120, also Plate VII, No. 61). Unlike more common types depicting a cross fleuretty within a double-stranded quatrefoil, the reverse depicts a cross feuilly within an embowed 'arcuate' cross in the centre. This particular example is rather crude and a close parallel for the reverse has not been found (However, cf. Mitchiner, p194). Both legends are near…

A continental copy of an Edwardian penny issued by John the Blind of Luxemburg, King of Bohemia. This coin dates to after he became King of Bohemia in 1310 AD and before he relinquished his claim to the Polish throne in 1335 AD. Meyhew suggests they are relatively early in that period (1983, p103-4) probably 1310-1325 AD. They are usually fine silver (90%+) but a debased (50%) example is known of Mayhew 261. It is probably fine silver but gone brown due to being in iron rich Wealden clay (Mayhew 1983, 267-262).
