Rescript, issued by the Danish Chancellery [Present-day Denmark]: “As far as the Jews are concerned, they shall be allowed to have their gold and silver melted by a designated smelter, since the Jews would otherwise take advantage of the profit they could make with gold-plated silver. These designated smelters, by melting and separating, are able to see the parts of gold and the parts of silver; however, if they should find any of the gold or silver of the Jews suspicious, then the Jew in question shall be arrested, and taken to the appropriate place.”
