One Lot of Seven Medieval Issues, Look!

Top/ 2 Ottoman Silver obols, 1 Hungary silver denar and 1 hammered silver Friesacher Pfenning ca. 12 Cent.*

Bottom/ Bela III and ???. Just guessing the center coin is maybe Maria Theresa?

* Friesacher Pfennig was in the Middle Ages – demonstrably from about 1166, but probably already at 1125/30 – one of the most important means of payment in the area of present-day Austria.
The silver coins are named after the town of Friesach in Carinthia, where the archbishops of Salzburg (probably in the time of Archbishop Konrad I, who reigned from 1106 to 1147) set up a mint in the vicinity of a silver mine located there. In the second half of the 12th century the archbishop was often depicted on the front of the coin, and two steeple tops were shown on the reverse side.

Have fun cleaning and attributing!
