I kinda surged forward a bit before Maximilians coin when i saw this for sale.... i hadda grab it!...this guy is the Louie de Pius of my Habsburgs HRE's..^^

Frederick III (German: Friedrich III, 21 September 1415 – 19 August 1493) was Holy Roman Emperor from 1452 until his death. He was the fourth king and first emperor of the House of Habsburg. He was the penultimate emperor to be crowned by the pope, and the last to be crowned in Rome.

Prior to his imperial coronation, he was duke of the Inner Austrian lands of Styria, Carinthia and Carniola from 1424, and also acted as regent over the Duchy of Austria from 1439. He was elected and crowned King of Germany in 1440.[1] His reign of 53 years is the longest in the history of the Holy Roman Empire or the German monarchy. Upon his death in 1493 he was succeeded by his son Maximilian.  POST AWAY PEEPS! 🙂

Nice coin – a typical example of an Austrian "Vierschlagpfennig" from the late Middle Ages. Since these were struck in great quantities and without much weight control, it is sometimes hard to decide whether a coin is a full pfennig or a halbling. This especially applies to somewhat worn coins.

Below is an example of the same general type minted by Frederick III's predecessor Ernest I:
