 Description

A copper alloy anonymous 'Venus Penny' jetton, most likely of Nuremberg*. Four small holes pierced around the band containing the legends. * The first and second quarters of the Austro-Burgundian shield are transposed. The Nuremberg masters appear to have taken special care to avoid using the authentic shield of their Emperor (Mitchiner, p. 387). It is noted that it has been pierced four times.
