constanius Posted September 12, 2008 Report Share Posted September 12, 2008 Circa 1620 silver gaming token, about 25mm & very thin planchet. Pictures James I (died 1625) and Prince Charles (beheaded 1649). These were issued in silver tubes for use in gambling, with various designs, including foreign rulers. The "Niello-work"images look engraved but there is debate about the actual method of manufacture. Listed in Medallic Illustrations, page 376, #272 (variety II). GIVE THY JUDGEMENTS O GOD UNTO THE KING. AND THY RIGHTEOUSNESS UNTO THE KINGS SONNE. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
