********************
Jetons were used in the manner of an abacus to aid calculation in arithmetic at a time when Roman numerals were still in regular use - imagine having to add XVIII to CCV! The counters were laid out in rows on a checker-board, cloth or table on which lines or boxes could be drawn. At first actual coins seem to have been used until the idea occurred of producing cheaper counters in base metal. In the late Middle Ages some cities came to specialize in jeton production. In the 16th century and later,Nürnbergwas responsible for producing vast quantities of such counters, which are today found in large numbers. Hans Krauwinckel was a prominent Nuremberg producer.
