This appears to be a Medieval European silver coin to me. The obverse appears to show a man holding up a city, and the reverse appears to show a figure surrounded by script. It weighs 1.1g and is approx. 20mm in diameter. Any identification help would be greatly appreciated. If possible, directions to a relevant catalogue or catalogue # would be most appreciated.

I'm pretty sure this is an Austrian Friesacher pfennig. Something very similar to this one, if not it exactly.
