Description

False/Censer Shekel struck(?) in pewter; w/leg. read right to left "Shekel Yisrael | HaKdusha Rushalayim" (missing the "Yud" in "Yerushalayim"); size: 31mm; weight: 11.55g. Depicts ornate amphora rather than chalice; many rim nicks and scuffs but the missing letter appears to be deliberate; medallic alignment. Inspired by Renaissance imitations called "Gorlitz Shekels".
