Very worn coin... the date is nearly visible but got it for free few days ago, so what the heck

thanks man... In the light I can see he is facing to the right, so the date should be 1805 if im correct. KM# 147.1

That will do I think, much appreciated!

Why not a farthing? With this little detail discernible one can tell for sure only by size.

20 - 21 mm would be a farthing (then the date has to be 1806).

27 mm would be a half (then the date has to be 1805)

Then it's 1805 - the only year this type was issued.
