One thing you could do is look for similar ones in the sold section of the famous auction-site-which-cannot-be-named, print them off and show the landowner what they realistically sell for. With any luck he will say thank you for your honesty, just keep it.
Unlikely to get a match for the coin and condition, and said site often has "chancers" hoping to get more than the coin is worth, but worth a try.

there is a facebook group that could give you a better idea of what the coin is worth, British hammered and milled coins, they buy, sell and auction said coinage.

I will only ever search the sold section for coins that have been sold. The unsold ones vary a lot.

It is a good group but I believe they have closed down the site to a certain extent as there was a bit of friction between some of the detectorists and the numismatists.

You can if you get invited to the group. I believe it is now secret so you can't find it on facebook but worth trying.
