I know nothing about these coins, but off hand I'd say this one has EF detail. It is nicely centered, with full rims, clearly-defined denticles, and no serious cuts or marks. The central detail seems somewhat blunt; is that typical for these coins? Is this one perhaps a sea-salvaged piece that has been conserved? The weak detail might be related to environmental damage which has been corrected as much as possible via the conserving process.

I assume this is a silver coin; can you confirm?

PS: it's definitely nice, and purdy!

Jaobler,
Yup, it is silver. And as far as I know, it has not be conserved or found in the sea. I have had it for quite awhile now. Just came across recently. I checked around the net and did not see any as nice. So I thought I'd put it here for all to enjoy.
Thanks for the comments.
