Indentify a private treasury coin

3 posts in this topic

The obverse side reads:

"100 grains sterling silver"

There is a head of a man, presumably William Wurzbach, stamped 1971.

The reverse side reads:

"From the private treasury of William A. Wurzbach"

There is a long-horned ram with a shepherd's staff.

Any ideas? Thanks.

William Wurzbach - german?

This sounds like a medal. Wurzbach was a German medal collector who published a catalogue of his own collection in 1943, and this could be a medal struck in commemoration of him. The catalogue is

W.R.v. Wurzbach-Tannenberg, Katalog meiner Samm[l]ung von Medaillen, Plaketten und Jetons. 2 Bande. Leipzig 1943, Nachdruck.

(Catalogue of my collection of medals, medallions and tokens. 2 vols. Leipzig, 1943) The above reference is to a later reprint (Nachdruck).

Hope this helps.
