46 x 41mm.

there were three versions of this. this one is the generic example. the other two were for 'ritterschaft furst bismark' and 'ritterschaft leipzig'. as far as i can tell, the only way two distinguish the difference from the three types is to look at the bottom of the central disc. my example has a dot. i know the the bismark version has a w, so i presume the leipzig version has something to denote it as well.

i edited the reverse image in order to show the hallmark a bit more clearly.

nope, the austrian-made version is larger at 48 x 46mm. gilding worn down to base metal, which appears to be tombac
