Difficult Silver coin for ID

Post by Rocketstu » Sun May 05, 2019 8:46 pm

I'm doubtful I'll get an ID on this one, found today around 6" down on pasture near the site of an old mill.
Not the greatest of detail on the coin and a shame about the break but I'm thinking is probably French?

Blimey A, I think you're spot on again! Just checked closely on the coin and can see it's pretty much a match.
