« on: November 20, 2015, 02:47:17 PM »
I'm not very sure if its an coin (think not) or token

i see an ship, lettering " DU (than the hole) H GLIKA ?? ORD"

Size is 18,67 - 19,12 mm
weight is 0,92 gramm

the other side is unreadable

Reminds me of a German ships good luck token. The text of these all start with "Durch Gluck und.." and then there is a wide variety of endings. compare with this one
This seems to be a somewhat degenerated version of these. (durch Gluck an bord ?)

after long staring at the token i read: DU(hole)H GLIK AA BORD.

so that also doesn't make any sense. or an coin maker that had trouble with reading?

These things seem to exist with al sorts of spelling errors.
Compare with this one.

Looks like a phonetic rendition of a local accent to me.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Mitchiner has it on page 597 by  Johann Christian Reich "DURCH GLIK AN PORD" ca. 1761-1800 AD.
