Now, I'm about 80% sure that this coin is from Hungary.

Not that this really helps me attribute it...



12 mm, 0.27 grams. Even tinier than the previous.
If that's Hungarian, I don't think it's a full denar...


[EDIT: attributed as a Lajos I denar - thanks @Spence!]

@j1m, if you rotate the top pic CCW by 90 degrees, it kinda looks like a crown. My best guess is that it is a Denar from Lajos the Great:

Good eyes! That looks like a match to me.
I thought the crown was a letter (some other Hungarian types have large fancy letters on them).

In hand (and to some extent on the photo), I read LODO under the crown, which is consistent with this type. So I guess that's one definite attribution.
