Don't know the coin, but the side in the left picture seems upside-down ?
The point of a shield is usually downwards. If turned, there seems to be a facing portrait with curly hair above the shield.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Quite an obscure coin, great attribution ! I tried the Otto/Bavaria combination earlier but could not find anything similar.
