And a few other bits 🤔… xx oh nd some pics I took just because …. 😍 xx (sorry, the copper coin is a George 2nd) xx

Update on the badge… The Comrades of The Great War were formed in 1917 as an association to represent the rights of ex-service men and women who had served or had been discharged from service during World War 1.

Comrades of The Great War was one of the original four ex-service associations that amalgamated on Sunday 15 May 1921 to form The British Legion. xx

Cool assortment of finds. The very beat up item in your fifth picture and the holed item in the sixth picture appear to be German jetons. I think both are probably by Hans Schultes of Nürnberg (now Nuremberg) and from between 1608-1612. Like this one, which has some variants:

Obverse: Turbanned bust with necklace and legend GLICK KVMPT VON GOT IST WAR [Happiness comes from God is true]
Reverse: Imperial orb within trefoil and legend HANS SCHVLTES ZV NVRENB [Hans Schultes for Nürnberg]

Agreed, I was going to point out the same although I like the alternative spelling - Jettons. Don't know why....

You pays yer money, and you makes yer choice, as they say. :happy11:

The word comes to us from old French, derived from the verb “jeter” literally meaning “to throw” but, for jetons, used in the sense of something being “pushed around”. That’s the way they were originally used on a checquered board of course, in a similar way to the beads on an abacus, to make accounting calculations.

Their first uses dates to the time when French was our ‘official’ language (c1066-1362) but, like many words we inherited from French, acquired an alternative anglicised spelling (as “jetton”) with the same pronunciation.
