Definitely an oldie. Came up a 18 on the NOX. If you know what this is let me know.

Un toastado! No, seriously it is pretty badly toasted, but a diameter and weight might help experts get a good idea. It looks thicker than a well used KG series large cent or Half cent but that might be the photo.
Well worn before being lost.
A token of some sort.

I believe the bust is too high and not shaped right on the found coin to be a KGIII, but I think looking at foreign coins is on the right track.

^ Now that you say this, let's try this. It's a long shot but maybe someone can make something of it if looked at from a different angle. First of all, I love the Seated Dime !!
Congrats Scolino !!
I rotated the image because I thought I noticed a side view of a person looking to the left open-mouthed with some sort of lettering underneath. It might be nothing but worth taking a look at.

Flowing hair maybe ?

I think the bust is 'high' because the edges of the coin have been worn down so much. I'd even say I see some *totally* parallel lines at the 1 O'clock position (above the nose and to the right) that could easily be the III in KGIII.
