The 20 [probably pfennig] seems the common of these. The 30 without counter-mark is probably silvered brass as my piece most certainly is.

Bajazzo, the German name for Clown, by Max Jentzsch & Meerz, Leipzig. The machines were of German origin, c1906, and were very popular in France at the beginning of the 20th century. It was so successful that it was also exported to England and was manufactured from 1906 until the late 50s.
