Austria(?): Judas Iscariot/ Jesus medal (ND), circa. 1915; blackened bronze cast; not maker-marked; size: 61.75mm, weight: 73.45g. Obverse: 'Jewish-looking' Judas whispering to stern-looking Jesus; legend: "Judas Jscharioth". Reverse: 4-lined legend above coat of arms: "DEM ERZVERRÄTER AUS DEM HAUSE SAVOYEN" ['The Arch-Traitor from the House of Savoy'].
