Munted silver coin?
« on: September 10, 2017, 19:49 »
Anyone ever seen one of these before?

It's 16mm dia, about 2mm thick.

Is that a coat of arms? not much discernible on the other side.
Please be gentle if it's the mortal remains of a common coin and I've just not identified it.  ::)

Too light to be lead, too heavy for aluminium, too shiny for steel, hence thinking silver, is there an easy "home" test for Ag?

Google tells me it's the coat of arms out of a Florin!

The pic is rotated 90 degrees left.
