German token with Gothic T
« on: October 17, 2020, 08:22:42 PM »
I have the following token:

Aluminum 25 mm
O: 50 | PFENNIG
R: (gothic letter) C

Both sides are stamped with "Z".

The denomination of Pfennig identifies it as German but it is not mentioned in Menzel (2018). Any help in further attribution is appreciated!

Indeed, a T. So I searched again in Menzel and found the following in the section "without place name":

44441.1 T
Al, 24,0 mm, o.J., Rs. "GUT FÜR (WZ) LITER BIER"
Metal and size the same but with a different reverse (Rs)
Unfortunately it is not mentioned whether the T is in a Latin or Gothic letter.

Thanks Mal!
