@tzd, yes that is possible: the Bonhoff catalog states that it is "St. Petrus (nicht erkennbar)". If it wasn't recognizable to him, then I suppose it could be just about anyone on these coins.

I defer to the catalog ... though I occasionally see mis-attributions of saints' images in auction listings.

This later 1/2 Batzen coin of Regensburg has St. Wolfgang for sure

Super group! Yes, I suppose depending on which language one prefers the Salzburg saint is St. Rupert or Ruprecht? (Rudbertus in Latin I suppose).
Here is mine, thanks to you OFEY guys pointing out it was an accessible choice for the year 1500:

Here are a couple 13th Century silver Pfennigs from the Austrian Duchy of Carinthia (minted in St. Veit). Despite the different depictions, I believe that the reverse of both of them is ole St. Veit himself. On the second coin, you can see the retrograde inscription TIEV--what is largely off flan is SANT.

This is shaping up to be a great week! I will drop in a couple of Papal States issues to cover centuries in between those nice pairs.
First, Saint Bruno (founder of the Carthusian order) on this undated testone (1689-90)



Then this 1709 grosso from the Ferrara mint with yet another St. George (Ferrara ceased being a duchy when Alphpnso II d'Este died without an heir in 1598. The pope gobbled up the former duchy).

I'll add one more nice St. Rupert from Salzburg, this 1700 Thaler, with a madonna reverse:

Wow that Thaler is drool-worthy!

Here is a beat-up 12th Century Follaro of the Italian City of Salerno. The guy with the halo is St. Matthew and you can see one half of the inscription (SM) which flanks him.
