Mara | 17 comments Mayer was the coin expert who Jamie and Claire consulted about the coins from the treasure, and in the end of the section from the book, Claire asks Jamie what "red-shield" was in German. It was "rostchild" i believe it was spelled. Then Claire comments that everyone starts from somewhere. What was she referring to?

They are a famous Jewish family that lent money in Europe.
