    Copper coin experts?

    I posted this over the weekend on “Todays Finds”... I apologized for the double posts but I am hoping it gets more attention on this forum. I am always amazed at what some TNet-ers are able to spot on an otherwise unidentifiable coin and I feel like there is enough left on this one that someone might help me get it sorted out.
    it came off a colonial site where i have found a William III, several KGIIs, and some other early relics. It is clearly a coin/token, but it may very well have been altered as it is not perfectly round and one side had a pronounced off-center strike, that looks like it was hammered to my eye. It is US half penny size... 22.27mm and 4.3g... but i have not found a single item from the 1800s on the site as of yet. I have highlighted the obvious features, the larger straight line is recent damage.
    Thanks for looking, HD

    I'm guessing Spanish. Maybe a crown over shield?

    This 1718 - 1720 2 Maravedis is similar in size:

    The best I can come up with so far is a pre-1700 Dutch Duit. The size and weight are in the correct range and the wreath details are similar.... The early duits appear to have had a number of obverse/reverse configurations base on the few examples I have been able to find....
    What do you think?
