Thanks. A question: the lion side of the coin( obverse?) looks, stylistically, like the Prager groschen ( Wensclas II) is that more than a coincidence?

Interesting idea. The Prager groschen was a bit earlier than the gros compagnon of Flanders. So the count of Flanders might have borrowed the idea from the Prager issues. Although this coin did not circulate in the Netherlands much at the time. Perhaps something we can look into as part of our research. Thanks.
