Germany Judaica protest Medal for Des Philanthropins School of Frankfurt, 1979
20770102
Germany: Farewell/protest Medal for "Des Philanthropins" School of Frankfurt, 1979; tombak (no maker-mark), 80mm, 120.2g: the "Das Philanthropin zu Frankfurt am Main" (also known as "Real- und Volksschule der Israelitischen Gemeinde") was one of the largest and longest-lasting Jewish schools in Germany, founded in 1804 by Siegmund Geisenheimer (and inaugurated by Moses Mendelssohn); closed by the Nazis in 1942, the building was re-opened as an administrative center for the Jewish community in 1954 and sold to the municipality in 1978 (being subsequently re-opened again 2006 as part of the I. E. Lichtigfeld School). The medal commemorates the then sad occasion of the building's closure and is engraved a "Farewell Medal" on the obverse with the founding and ending dates of 1804 - 1979, and on the reverse a darkly comical image adorned with the legend "in the beginning there was the idea... in the end it was [just about] money". The grind-box says "Public Opinion". In UNC with a few traces of holder residue.

15070177
Germany > Brandenburg: Joseph and His Brothers inflationary Jeton ("Josefs-Jeton" - "Joseph und Seine Bruder" Rechenpfennig), 1772; struck in copper; by Johann Christian Reich; 30mm, 6g.

Leonard Forrer mentons Reich's famine era counters (jetons) only in passing, and sums up (vol. 5, p.71) Reich's artistic legacy thus: "One can only confirm Bolzenthal's appreciation of this Medallist's work, that it does not rank very high in artistic merit." In VF-EF (possibly even an UNC piece with poor detail due to a weak strike) - exhibits excellent luster and lovely toning; reverse shows great detail though two spots appear faintly due to weak strike; Brettauer-1936; P.u.R.-154; struck in copper/alloy(!) - not listed with this metal in Brettauer or P.u.R.

British Merchant of Venice silver Judaica medal by Shakespear Co./Philip Nathan
14970179
Great Britain: Merchant of Venice medal (ND); struck in silver; by Philip Nathan; 44.25mm, 40.85g: obverse bears quotation from the play, [the heroine Portia to the Jew Shylock, before the court]: "Tarry a little… This bond doth give thee here no jot of blood", surrounded by flowers around the edge and at top the emblem of the Royal Shakespeare Company. On reverse, the scene from Act IV, Scene I of the play. Numbered 71 and part of a series issued by the RSC; in Proof state (frosted), with a few handling marks. The continuation of Portia's words to Shylock are: "Take then thy bond, take thou thy pound of flesh, but in the cutting it if thou dost shed one drop of Christian blood, thy lands and goods rre by the laws of Venice confiscate unto the state of Venice." (summarized: "But wait a moment. There’s something else. This contract doesn’t give you any blood at all. The words expressly specify "a pound of flesh". So take your penalty of a pound of flesh, but if you shed one drop of Christian blood when you cut it, the state of Venice will confiscate your land and property under Venetian law.") Critics say the character of Shylock is not an anti-Semitic one but rather an exposition about anti-Semitism in Elizabethan England.

German anti-Semitic Judaica Friedrich Ludwig Jahn cast iron tallion c. 1870s-80s
15270183
Germany: Friedrich Ludwig Jahn anti-Semitic cast iron tallion, c. 1870s-1880's; not maker-marked; 36x36mm, 16.5g. Obverse: right facing Jahn & legend "Wer Jahn ehrt * Des Juden wehrt" ("Where Jahn is honored, the Jews protect themselves"). Reverse: "Turner Cross" ("Turnerkreuz") device surrounded by oakleaves wrapped by 3 ribbons on each side with various dates. Jahn's worldview incorporated anti-foreigner/anti-Semitic sentiment and though considered an outspoken anti-Semite, he left no influence on other movements. Though many tallions commemorate Jahn few incorporate anti-Semitic content - hence this piece is unusual.

French anti-Semitic Judaica Philippe Duke of Orleans/anti-Dreyfus medal, 1900
19270184
France: Philippe Duc D'Orleans / anti-Dreyfus medal, 1900; struck in brass (silvered); designer unknown (unmarked); 30.5mm, 8g: obverse bears left facing bust of Philippe VIII and general legend in French around; reverse, text in center and around edge (in capital letters): "Je replacerai mon pays au premier rang des nations avec le concours de tous les vrais Francais / Je ne vengerai que les injures faites a la patrie * Philippe *" ("I will put my country at the forefront of nations with the support of all true French / I do not avenge the insult to the country"). In VF+/EF (lack of detail probably due more to weak strike than to actual wear). Philippe Duke of Orleans (1869-1926) was an English-born Orleanist claimant to the French throne as Philippe VIII from 1894-1926. An avid expeditioner, he saw in holding the title to the thrown a way of financing his hobby and veered towards the Royalist faction in France to secure his legitimacy to and position on the thrown. The "Dreyfus Affair" which erupted the same year Philippe acended the thrown tainted the positions of conservative and liberal factions in France and saw the Royalists and Philippe, take an anti-Dreyfus and even anti-Semitic stance on the affair which lasted up to 1906 and even further on. This medal was issued a few times in 1899 and 1900 both to legitimize Philippe's claim to the thrown as well as to echo his conservative credentials through references to the Dreyfus Affair ("support of all True Frenchmen / insult to the country").
