Denomination : Billon blanca del Agnus Dei.  Mint : Burges.

Size : 22.2 x 23.8 mm.  Weight : 1.36 grams.

Reference : AB-549.

Grade : gVF with a dark slightly irridescent toning.

Obverse : Crowned Y flanked at the base by B S (for Burges mint).  I am having trouble with the letter forms in the inscription, but by using this coin and those illustrated on coin archives (none of which show more than this coin) the best i can make it out is ESTA MVRDI MISEL around (which does not quite make sense to me).

Reverse : Lamb with a flag, Castle, with AGNVS DEI QVITO around.

All the specimens of this type I can locate images of have very weak and difficult to read inscriptions.  This coin appears to have about as nice of inscriptions as any of them have.
