I dont have any conclusions, just questions.
However, I noticed a couple of instances of WW)S and a couple of other
words that look as if they could have come from Yiddish, so I concluded
that the coin could be a Kabbalistic medalion derived from Yiddish
using a non-standard Yiddish, or even Yiddish code. Its a guess.
I was looking for archaic Hebrew writing, which would indicate a
true Hebrew coin.
