Denomination : Silver half Groschen.  Mint : Magdeburg.

Date : 1540.

Size : 19.7 x 20.2 mm.  Weight : 1.08 grams.

Reference : Saurma 4104 variety

Grade : gVF for wear, but some weakness in the strike.

Obverse : Arms of Magdeberg, with ALBERT CA AR MA MAG B around (or similar as the MA MAG is to weak to be certain of, but the B is clear).

Reverse : Saint Maruice standing slightly left with two shields at his sides, with 40 SANCT MAVRIC around.

The 40 for the date is a little weak and the digits are a little smaller than the letters that follow it.  I almost did not see it, but once you know where to look for it, you can read it.
