Can anyone ID this small hammered/milled coin

Post by UK_Detectorist »

I found this tiny coin last week on a field that mostly throws up 17C coins and artifacts, along with a few Edward 1st pennies. The coin is silver and measures about 11mm across. I have not seen one like it before and im guessing that it might be European.

Thank you
