    It reminds me of my Polish-Lithuanian 1614 3 Polker a bit
    I think I see "Mone No" (moneta nova?) on both.
    Will do a search and let you know what I find.

    Yeah, I started out in Poland (the double eagles looked familiar) then moved to German States, looked through about 10 states and jumped to Austria, then back to Germany. Still haven't figured it out yet...

    (FWIW, this one is getting kept, so just looking for an attribution, not trying to have people "do my work" for me for selling.)

    Think I found it: France, City of Colmar 2 Kreuzer

    You can see the "COLM" at the 11:00 position on your left image.
    I just did a Numista search for "MONE NOVA" until I found the closest match I could.

    That DOES look like it - great job! I was looking in the complete wrong century...so yeah, it would have taken me a while.

    Thank...YOU!

    I did try typing the legends into google, but came up empty...
