    Foreign coin id please...

    Hi. I found this colonial era coin in Virginia yesterday at the Relic Rescue hunt and can't quite figure out what it is. It's a first for me. My Google-foo appears to be very weak today. Here's the front and back. Thanks...

    Whoops, I'd originally extracted the wrong conclusion from that thread (so I deleted info from above). Crusader ID'd near the bottom of the thread above, yet PBK had a slightly different take, shown in his link further up. Crusader -- any update? (the above link is a few years old, and PBK isn't posting any longer, unfortunately)

    As I checked a really thick book, I will assume nothing has changed, otherwise I have a long hunt again:

    Produced by Ludwig Chistian Laucer (of the Laucer Firm) mostly produced jettons in Weizengasse, Germany between 1842-1873.
