After spending a ton of time this weekend at antique houses, I finally hit pay dirt: a single case with some really nice foreign coins and tokens in it.
I bought a Conradty notgeld for an extremely good price (and in the wild, no less). Even more noteworthy, I got me my first graphite medal. Check out how they compare.
The graphite medal is massive and looks and feels very much like pencil lead. Next to it, the Conradty does not. As tempted as I am to say it's just because of the matte surface, they look different enough that I think they're distinctively different from each other. The Germans call the notgeld a "coal ceramic" piece. I don't necessarily know what that means but it's probably relatively self explanatory and not graphite.
