I want to say Ferdinand VII picayune (Medio / half real) circa 1809 - 1812 that circulated for a long time.
I am pretty sure you are spot on. The last pictures needs to be rotated, but the visible letters line up well with HIS
D, and the size comparison matches up with a 1/2 real. For the portrait, only one 1/2 real seems to match the hairline and bottom clothing line, which is Mexico's Fernando VII (see here
). Numista says these coins were made from 1808 to 1814, but this coin looks too worn to tell which it is.
Now, I would recommend not sending this coin to a TPG
for two reasons: the first is that, if the last digit of the date it not visible, this coin is too worn to be properly identified; the second reason is that this is a Details coin due to the multiple gauges. A dateless Details coin would definitely not be worth the grading fees.
