Interesting colour, wonder what it's made of?

Is it worth a punt as it is so rare !? 🤣

This is an old page I wrote about "Model Coins" probably about 20 years ago:


Although this CoinQuest page is better:


Lauer was just one such manufacturer, in Nurnberg, Germany.

They are all base metal, generally copper, brass, or "white metal".

Here's another sovereign token made by Lauer. My mother in law had quite a few young head Victioria tokens a while back she inherited from her neighbour but I could never find out who made them. I suppose all made by this same firm way back then.
