@spirityoda can find it in his books. Also, fyi, your bottom picture needs to be rotate 180 degrees to be properly oriented.
Thanks, I will edit it now.
The reverse shield doesn't exactly match the shield on the silver coins.
Very similar overall, but clearly different shield devices and metal as mentioned in the previous post. The coin in question could also be a 28 schilling denomination, although this too should not be in copper~and it appears that I can see the name ‘IOHAN’ (Johann), but the rest is difficult to make out. I am thinking it could be a contemporary counterfeit, also.
German States/Jever ND(1649-51) KM#40 , 28 Stuber (Gulden) denomination. silver,
grade/value from 2003 17th century World coin catalog.
VG-$25.00 F-$50.00 VF-$110 XF-$175
not sure what your coins grade is ???
The small bit of silver could mean it was plated at one time. It also feels old, due to the pitting. Any chance it is a 17th century counterfeit?
Great job with the spectrograph. I have seen quite a few old German coins and yes, this looks like a counterfeit. Contemporary? Sorry, I don’t know.
Thank you for clarifying that.
