Knowledge in motion
22 March 2023
Coincidence or not, the guild token that was exhibited in Bonn in recent months has acquired a new dimension. We received the grateful tip from an observant web visitor that this medal is incorrectly described. According to current information, it would be a membership sign of the tobacco merchant’s guild of Middelburg. The email we received about this revealed that there has been a guild in Aardenburg, Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Neatly with references to numismatic literature, it can be shown that our medal comes from there. The data is therefore quickly adjusted in our database. A good example of crowd-sourcing, knowledge added by the public. If you also discover inaccuracies in our database, please let us know. This is how our knowledge advances.
