I actually figured out most of it using the NumisWiki German page.

Br. - bust (Brustbild)
m. - with (mit)
L. - laurel wreath (Lorbeerkranz)
P. - cuirass (Panzer)
M.
r. - right (rechts)

Only the M., which I assume is draped, remains.  What is the German word it abbreviates and the English translation?

Mantel = cloak, or more technically paludamentum, what we sloppily call drapery or draped in English.
