GERMANY, porcelain medals & tokens
    Around the end of the 19th century one of the porcelain factories in the town of Meissen started making medallets out of hard terra cotta and porcelain.  They proved popular and a series of several hundred items was produced over a period of about 60 years.  The earliest one I've seen was 1896, the latest I know of was made during the time of the defunct German Democratic Republic.  They are pretty, they are interesting, I think they're cool.  The catalog numbers are from Scheuch or Upton.
