I am sorry, but have to write in English as I do not speak German
My name is Vytautas, I am from Lithuania (Litauen) and I have a question about Prussian orts (also known as "Vierstaler", "ortstaler", "achtzehngroescher"). So far in literature I have found that they were mad of silver, but no official weigh or finess (amount of pure silver in the coin).
In one auction I have found the weight of the coin - 6,35 grams, but I am not sure if is the legal weight - i.e. weight, prescribed by a ruler. I also searched Krause publications (like "World coins", "Crowns and talers" etc), but to no results.
Can anyone help me with this question, please?
