The most common gros compagon found today áis Type V issued byLouis of Male, count of Flanders (1346-1384). Having seen many of them and compared them with exisiting literatur we were able to identify sub-groups that went unnoticed untill now.

most medieval coins are not that great to look at. Poor workmanship + staying in the ground for centuries has effect on them. The history behind the coins is great though.
