Hi All

Does anyone know this coin or can ID it?
This coin is 3.75 gram but the style looks odd and crude. Also the metal doesn't seem like silver but more like lead.

I appreciate opinion on this.

If it is made of lead, it would bend very easily with finger pressure only.

Billon takes on all different colors/appearances from slightly more gray than silver, to brownish, to nearly black, and every color in between.

(though to me this just looks like an old silver coin, and a very nice one!)

If you have no time to wait and needed to sell the coin in an open auction it is always best to check sold items in past sales searching eBay. Not sales people made offers on or anything like that. Ones where you see there were many bids. That is what the coin is currently worth usually. If you are willing to wait for a buyer like vcoins or buy it now with a fixed price you can get 2x the amount, or even 3 x but you have to wait a bit. Here is one that sold int he UK from an auction with many bids.
