Frankfurt "Judenpfennig" - 1 Olstein 1815
« on: February 02, 2011, 01:50:25 AM »
I'm fairly certain I know what this is, but if I post it under the appropriate board it may give the game away.  Let's see how people get on with working out what it is and where it's from - preferably without the good offices of Google if you can, please!

The vendor had done some interesting research of his own and, I believe, had come up with an interesting but entirely erroneous theory.  It is copper, 20 mm.  Dies are coinage aligned.

That's what the seller said, but I am skeptical - did you find anything other than the name of Mr Olstein that links the "token" with that event?

Thanks - I will be interested to hear more.  The style and fabric of the piece definitely look early 19th-century rather than 20th.

I think these are "Jew's pennies", tokens issued by Jewish tradesmen at Frankfurt (on Main) in Germany.
