UNO or Unidentified Numismatic Objects
Posted here is a small German States coin. Mutt has had it in his collection for over forty years. He recently found the coin with a few other holed coins and gave it to Jeff to see if it could be identified. First they have identified the coat of arms as a Saxony State. The inscriptions were not completely clear. But, finding a better graded coin on the internet helped to see them as follows -
Obverse: Crowned, Coat of Arms of Saxony, W • H • Z • S to left,
G • C • II • B • to right, 1656 below.
Duke Friedrich Wilhelm Herzog zu Sachsen Gulich Cleve und Berg
Reverse: cum deo (with god) / bane - faci: / endo bene / faciet
