I agree! @pep always brings top-shelf coins to this thread. On the other hand, here is a more widely circulated Groschen of the German Duchy of Silesia-Liegnitz-Brieg dated AD 1542:

Another Hungarian Denar for me. These will dominate my entries for the next couple weeks. As I recall, I bought out someone's entire stock of them many years back when they were selling for just a few bucks each.

Mine and @pepactonius groats differ in the obverse lettering (PRV and PRVS). There is a third variant, PRVSS, which appears to be scarcer than the other two based on populations seen at the WCN auctions.

I really like the positive/negative "Maltese" cross design on your 3 Groschen @tdz.

I'm back to Hungarian Denars for the next few days:
