1 Grosz (groschen), Gubin mint.

Krause calls it a 3 solidi (3 schilling) coin. https://www.NGCcoin.com/price-guide...duid-1538126
The values listed are reasonably accurate, and yours would probably grade around VF by a Polish auction house.

A bit of history that Germany collectors might know ...

The monarch pictured on this coin served simultaneously as Augustus III, King of Poland and Grand DUke of Lithuania (1734-1763), and as Friedrich August II Elector of Saxony (1733-1763).
Coins like this with the title Augustus III King of Poland and Elector of Saxony, were meant for circulation in Poland (even when they were struck at a German mint), whereas coins that bear the legend Friedrich Augustus II Elector of Saxony & King of Poland were meant to circulate in Saxony.

Confusing to say the least
