Hi Folks

 

first post

 

this has been found recently, and was wondering if anyone has seen one before

 

the original Jeton of this period is 1385-1422, and copper bronze

 

Silver jetons were made for high ranking people

 

This has turned up, and appears to be a first for this type

 

but is it real?

 

thought i would ask the experts - thats you guys

 

Thanks

From the softness of the detail it looks like it has been cast, which right off the bat strikes me as a counterfeit. I can't imagine they would make silver coins, even jetons through casting during this time period. I am however no expert on jetons so I will let someone else chime in, but my vote is for counterfeit, whether contemporary or not is another story.
