Nice ! I shifted my focus in the past from Dutch provincial to oriental. Your posts get me tempted to look closer to home again !
To keep your coin company, here a stuiver from about the same period.

Sorry, Maarten, but I don't think this coin is genuine. The biggest problem is the border. On every piece I remember, have looked up in my books and on the net, the double stuivers (and the stuivers, for that matter) where at least part of the border is still visible, I have seen a toothed border (sometimes it looks like a pearl border.) None has the tulip border on yours.

Instinctively, I would take this for a contemporary counterfeit, though I can't explain why a forger would make his own life more difficult with a decorative border. Can you give us the exact weight of the coin?

Tomorrow you  get  the exact  Weight. Tom Passon maker of the catalogi  about the coins  of the netherlands have seen it with his  own  eyes. He told my that was a good  an. Tulp  border exist  but you never see  them.
