It very much looks like an Austrian/Hungarian kreuzer from 1869 in toasty condition; I recognize the layout since I have several of these .

Nice work @mrw. I think you are right. Here is the numista link:

The mintmark is A so this is probably the Austrian type: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces2360.html

AFAICT what's left of the obverse fits that better as well.

I don't think so.

The tip of the A is centered. The date is not exactly centered, but if you look at @j1m's link, the date in that image is also slightly left of center.
I think your eye is reacting to the asymmetric amount of detail remaining right and left

I made a study of coins like this six years ago because I obtained several that were claimed to be counterfeit.
They were not.
Just different among the population.
They "didn't look right" by the donor.
I used software to draw calibrated lines and a computer microscope to measure and show how wide ranged and varied the letters & numerals were regarding placement.
How regular and non-regular they were both horizontal and vertical.
If you have enough coins like these, many differences can be seen among them.
I scanned my book pages, reduced page size and color to show these as examples:
