Unknown coin  
i have a question , where is the origin of the coin ? thank you

Answer
Hi Dimas,

You surprised me with this 'coin'.
I believe it will be difficult to tell exactly who made it.

We are talking about playing jeton - token from 18th century of Maria Theresa.
Could be German but since it is kinda home made it is hard to tell.

Looks unofficial and it could be made by someone illiterate.

Because we are talking about a jeton this question is not in my area so I cannot answer you as good as I could if it would be a proper coin.

Hopefully that I helped you a bit anyway!?

With kind regards from Slovenia
