Has a slight bend but overall a nice coin. Got it as a gift from mother in law in Hungary. The lighting cast a yellow hue coin is silver.

The bend might be normal if they were made from roller dies.

Bend is normal and that is a lovely high grade example, AU if not fully Uncirculated. Lucky you :)

In Spain the roller dies coins were called "tejas" (=roof tiles). Is not just normal, the absence of bend is a bad thing ;)



Lovely example of a roller die!

Although it may be made of good silver, the edge looks a little suspect to my eye. I hope I am wrong.

Appears to have no sign at all of any fine scratching or nicks for a coin that is more than 350 years old.
For a 3 Kreuer, should be about 20mm diameter, quite thin, and weigh somewhere around 1.5 grams.

Large numbers of the "hogmouth" Kreuzer were minted and many survive in Uncirculated condition.
