    This is not be an exact match but it should give you an idea of date and where it came from...

    "Italy, Bergamo, Commune, coinage in the name of Federick II (1236-85) silver Mezzo-Grosso, 1.21g, bust right, rev. church,
    variety with pellet and star above (CNI.IV, 133), slightly uneven edge, very fine"

    Affraid not, as its not British. I don't tend to study foreign stuff unless I find it.

    The letters, I can sort of make out are as follows:
