I'm not ignoring you but I am unable to find where I put this token. However, I am 98% sure all the designs
were raised above the surface. In general I don't like incuse tokens so I am sure I would have noted that in the original
post.

Dear Prosit, did  both sides of your token are embossed as they look on the pictures? I have one with the face with "khat 19 - 12 " which is intaglio (same diameter : 16,5mm)
Please could you confirm ? : 2 varieties or optical illusion  ???

Thank you :)
Here is my token.
I see that on my pictures, both faces appear to be rather with raised legends.... however the right one is well incuse !
These tokens seem to come from the same die : notice the small scratch on the digit "2" of "12" present on both.

I found it. It was in a Binder labeled "Luck Tokens-Non-German".  :P

The date side is definitely incuse.

If I was a betting person, I would bet a token exists without the scratch on the two.
