Extra info:An English ’sterling bust’ jeton dating to the early 14th century. The bust and crown are from a die made from the same punches as those used to produce dies for class 11 pennies (1310-1314) of Edward II.
The central indentation is a characteristic of English jetons of this period. It is believed to have been done to prevent them from being silvered and passed off as coins. The flan has also been nail-bored, possibly as a consequence of it having been silvered and subsequently discovered not to be a true coin.
Found in dumped ground from the Dutch city Arnemuiden by a friend.
