Help with Germanic? coin ID

@IVB I appreciate your expertise and assistance on CU. I'm hoping this coin is easier. 2.1g and 23.8mm, copper and thin. The side with the cross is kinda similar to some Nurnberg coins but I'm not sure. Peace Roy

    @Namvet69 This is a counter jeton from Nuremberg.

    On one side there is an inscription "HANS SCHVLTES DE M" - jeton master Hans Schultes from the Schultes dynasty.
    There were three Hans in total:
    --- Hans Schultes I, master 1553, died 1584
    --- Hans Schultes II, master 1586, died 1603
    --- Hans Schultes III, master circa 1608, died 1612

    I can't read the inscription on the other side. There were many variations.

    Interesting articles about Nuremberg tokens:

    @IVB again, thanks. Both articles are excellent. You've made me a better cherrypicker. The UK detector site is phenomenal in its breadth and depth of info. Also helped me id a few crotal bells that I've dug. Have a good day. Peace Roy
