    It does appear to be the "Jubilee " profile of Her Majesty - and now I'm unsure if you found a thruppence or a sixpence ?

    Can't ID it without a diameter, as it could be a 3 pence, sixpence, or shilling??
    The Jubilee head was used from 1897-1893.

    Since we are given that it is close to the size of a
    U.S. dime , I'm thinking sixpence rather than thruppence - but I could be mistaken !
