Found this coin today it’s about 2mm thick and one I don’t recognise I haven’t try to clean it yet it looks quite delicate it’s probably not worth trying to get any more detail as might lose what is there

Looks a bit like a Hans Krauwinkel Neurenburg Jetton H to me

I see what you think Steve but all the Jettons I have found are more the thickness of a hammy this is more like the thickness of a milled coin

I`ve never found a "thick" type of this sort , only the thin scrawny types.

The thin one I have weighs 0.6g. The one in Ian's link weighs just over 6g so has to be considerably thicker.
