I wouldn't have put this in spot #2, but this was the only other coin in the lot that I already had half-decent(-ish) photos of, so at number 2 it goes.

I distinctly recall having seen the first side's design somewhere on CCF before, but can't recall where.
I think it had to do with Poland or Hungary.



12 mm, 0.39 grams. That thing's tiny.
(And probably unattributable in this condition, but who knows.)

The crown in the second photo looks like the one used on coins of Wladyslaw Jagiello, but to the best of my knowledge, there is no legend around the rim on his denars, and the other side would be the Piast eagle.
So probably this eliminates Poland?

...Only me.
Only I can go and get some neat Hungarian denars, and accidentally end up with two of the same type.





(Actually, there's a chance that this one is the older Karoly Robert type; the distinguishing legend is all off flan and/or worn away, and the crown looks a bit more like that type than the Lajos one. It's probably impossible to say for certain.)
