Lauer Cast 1/4 Thaler Victorian Age Watch FOB

Recommended Posts

This is what I believe to be a pocket watch FOB. I'm thinking that this went on the end of a chain

and through a button hole in a Victorian mans vest.

It looks to be a copy of an Austrian 1/4 Thaler. Marked very discretely "Lauer" and "Nurngb"

Measures 33mm in diameter, 2.5mm thick at the rim and was "Silvered". Some of the silvering is still present.

Please present additional info if you have it---Thanks

Great find! Where's the evidence of silvering?

On the reverse (side with the date I guess?), lower left quadrant of coin, bright stuff shown as lighter color.

I guess it's silver or silver colored wash of some sort. I think this would be right as the original coins (1/4 Thaler) of the era were

silver and the maker is trying to emulate it?
