German States (Augsburg): ca. 1184-1202 silver bracteate of Bishop Udalschalk of Eschenlohe

Brilliant coin (as in, literally), @lordmarcovan; really magnificent.  @expat nailed it; the toning is exceptional.  As superb as it is otherwise, for me, at least, that easily accounts for half of the full esthetic effect.  ...Thank you, to wallow self-indulgently in the obvious, that kind of toning is as rare as it is beautiful.
