    The Mitchiner reference only lists one jeton for Charles VI, and it has his portrait on one side. Can you read the inscription on the side with the crown? I can't.

    Sorry Chris, It's not my coin and this is the only photo I have. I did find another similar coin at MA shops.

    Neither are an exact match, but both were similar. I can't find any reference or resource. I recall that you have a copy of Mitchiner's book on jetons, so you might be the only resource I have.

    I looked at the jetons listed in both links, and I just can't decipher the legend. A lot of times, the legend is useful because the Mitchiner reference provides Indexes for 1) Persons, 2) Corporate Bodies, 3) Places, 4) Designs, 5) Technical and 6) Inscriptions.

    Thanks, I'll contact the owner of the coin and see if I can get a better photo.
