Nuremberg Jetons

The Guild Masters

The masters are listed alphabetically in family groups, each of which is ordered chronologically, based on the first recorded date. It should be borne in mind that throughout most of the period under consideration, many anonymous jetons were struck. Some of these can be attributed to a known master on the basis of style, or by special marks used in the design; others remain unassigned.
