I got a job lot of coins from an auction, all of them are Augsburg coins (German States), and I've identified all of them except this one and it is really bugging me. Not the best photos I know, hopefully I'll have it hand next week. Can anyone attempt to identify it from these photos?
It is about 15mm in diameter, same size as a 1 Heller from 1801. The rest of the coins ages range from 1628 to 1801, I presume this one predates the 17th century.

Hmm not in my Szego or my Steinhilber. It is a little unusual to have a non-bracteate Pfennig with a bishop on one side with nothing on the other. Maybe better pics when you have the coin in hand will help.


Added: I take that back. Seems as though there is a version of Steinhilber #177 that is somewhat uniface (the reverse is described as "indeterminate"). It was issued by Peter von Schaumburg (AD 1424-1469). That is my best guess as to what you've got there.

Thanks Spence! They look very similar indeed. Most of them have a 'B' on the reverse, it looks like this may have a faint one too.
