    Nice coin Mark...sorry I can't help with an ID. You have to love NJ....I found a Spanish cob last year in a park.

    Happy hunting and good luck on getting an ID.

    Re: Hammered silver coin found in south jersey help id

    The back of the coin looks VERY much like a German mark with the 2 headed bird on the reverse. Similar to the one I just found on Google. I'm still researching.

    I know I'm getting close now. Real close.

    My guess is it's probably Archduke Leopold I and around 1660 in date (if of course it's real).

    EDIT:

    My final answer is...

    Austria
    -Silver 3 Kreuzer (21mm), 1670-SHS
    -Silesia, AVF
    -Leopold the Hogmouth bust/crowned 2 headed eagle

    It is Austrian. Consensus is approx a 1670 Leopold I.

    We are going to cut it up and split the spoils amongst those who got "in" on the thread. The owner just doesn't know it yet.
