Denomination : Silver Denier.   Mint : Bamberg.

Date : Struck between AD 1296 and 1303.

Size : 14.9 x 16.0 mm.  Weight : 0.46 grams.

Reference : Banhoff-2063.

Grade : VF, with typical incomplete strike.

Obverse : Bishop's head forward.  I have not solved the entire obverse inscription on these yet, but examples on coin archives start with LVP and this coin ends with EPC but there are at least three letters in between.

Reverse : Church, with an inscription starting with BABEN but I have not been able to find out what the last half of the inscription would have read (there appear to have been five more letters, but only fragments of them are visible).
