Napoleon Bonaparte and me

Recommended Posts

Maybe of interest for those who collect the Napoleonic era:




Germany, Jeton or counter of Napoleon and Hermann (German name for Arminius, who killed Varus and most of his 3 legions), by J. W. Huber ( ;) ) (Fürth), struck ca. 1825 AD.( ;) ),

Brass Medal with hanger (21-26 mm / 2,72 g),

Obv.: NAPOLEON - EMPEREUR / H , laureate head of Napoleon Bonaparte left.

Rev.: HERMANN - D. DEUTSCHE , frontal view of Arminius / Hermann holding up sword with his right and long shield with left arm.

Ref. ;) .


Maybe someone can correct or add my vague attribution.


Thanks and regards.

For what it's worth the book Nuremberg and Nuremberg Style Jetons by L.B. Fauver also identifies this piece as by J.W. Huber of Furth (worked 1825-1840). But he calls the reverse as "Mars, standing, sword and harp". Forrer doesn't have an entry for him.
