What the heck is this??? Spain and Russia???


Recommended Posts

one side is obviously Spanish... the other side has some eastern European influences... anyone?




The eagle does resemble the Russian Eagle, but the arms on the breast are not Russian (i.e. not the shield of Muscovy with order of St. Andrew surrounding it).


As mentioned by other posters, Spain or Austria seems like a better bet.

Spain was ruled by Habsburgs for a good long time so spanish mixed with austrian isnt far fetched though to me it looks like it might just be a fantasy peice...I have never seen such combo but that doesnt mean anything at all :ninja:

It is not a Russian eagle, neither it is Austrian (Austrian shield has horizontal lines). I agree that this is probably a fantasy piece.

I have several slightly different brass tokens with young queen Victoria on obverse and this very eagle on reverse.
