I need help to identify these Schillings and Groschens
They are very small. I did not find details about them. Maybe you know.
I need help to identify these coins.
Thanks.

Hello Protopoparcalita, and welcome to WoC !

Looking at the size and weight of your coins this must be playmoney. Looking at "Spielgeld" and "1937" i get for example this site, which seems to show very similar pieces, though no weight or size is given.

Agreed, Spielgeld. Basically the four pieces are miniature versions of actual coins issued in the Austrofascist years, see these originals:
5 Groschen Austria 5 Groschen
50 Groschen Austria 50 Groschen
1 Schilling Austria 1 Schilling
2 Schilling (Franz Schubert) Austria 2 Schilling (Schubert)

Of these original coins, only the 2S piece is silver. So I guess the 1S "mini-piece" will be Cu-Ni as well ...

Thank you very much, guys!.
I never thought that it could be Spielgeld.
