help on Prussian orts


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I do need some help with Prussian coins. Currently I am to write an article about them and I need metrologic data. I have searched throughout all books I have, from Krause to World crowns and talers, googled in all languages I know (English, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian).

Still no data. All I need is to know legal weight and finess of Prussian orts (aka ortstaler, achtzehngroscher). Example: 1622, weight 7.77 g, fines 500; 1644 weight 7.50 g, finess 125.

Any ideas? :ninja:
