The upper image reads GUS'ADO which I think might be Gustav Adolph.

Yep. Dreipolker / poltorak / 1/24 thaler of Gusatus Adolphus of Sweden.

Normally the last two digits of the date are just under the arms of the cross reverse.

With a bit more digging ...
I am not sure this type was issued for use in Sweden under Gustavus Adolphus, so it may be an issue for the Swedish occupation of Elbing (formerly Prussia, then Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth). A few of these were posted on the "How Far Back..." thread in the 1630s.

... or the Swedish occupation of Riga: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces62190.html

Because part of the legend on the orb side is missing, it's hard to tell which. But should be one of these.

I think the correct attribution is the first one, Swedish Occupation of Elbing.
The date range is 1632-35, during which the reverse legend is MON NO REG SVE. Before this it is MON NO CIVI ELB. The last digit of the date is below the right arm of the cross, and looks like only the upper part of it is visible. Maybe a 5?
