Medieval copper alloy French jetton dating to AD 1380 to 1450. Crown / triple stranded cross flueretty type with obverse legend ENVIE AMOVR REO.

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.

Post medieval copper alloy coin or jetton or token of uncertain state, possibly the Low Countries or Germany, dating to 1566. The piece has an unclear, possibly nonsense legend on the obverse with the figure of a standing archer. The reverse has a cross fleuretty and an unclear legend with the date 1566. The general style seems similar to 16th century jettons of Nuremburg and to some low denomination coins of the Low Counties and adjacent terrirories but it is not currently possible to identify it from the books to hand.
