Impossible ID!! Coin or Jetton?

Post by TheMichaelH » Sat Jun 17, 2017 9:35 pm

Not expecting much with this one as it’s pretty wiped.

It’s the size of a 1900’s half penny.

Has a shield with a figure above it on one side.

Other side has the number 2 on the top half, can make out letters STOL (maybe) about the number 2.

Any help appreciated,
Thanks

ID should not be too troublesome as it has a clear center design. For what it is worth, It looks like a rearing horse and rider above a shield containing domed towers.

Actually, on closer look, it looks like a person carrying something on their back.

You should be able to ID it as a penny or halfpenny by the size of it.
