Pewter Coin Badge based on a Gold Peter from Brabant.

Item #1453


Date:  1375 - 1450

     Found in Holland. Coin badges were commonly worn for good luck. It is nearly identical to #2216 in Van Beuningen's Heilig en Profaan, Volume 2. This badge shows evidence of being nailed to another object. Many surviving badges appear to have been nailed to walls in homes. (THe picture is sideways.)
