Didnt find this with my detector nor did i purchase it. It is still a mystery to me how it got into my collection but im not complaining. Only script i can make out on the coin says Maria II. I did some looking and couldnt find any coins like the one ive got. Id like to know who is on the reverse side of the coin and anything else anyone may know about it. Thanks guys, so far everyone on here has been very helpful.

Reverse side.

I forgot to put a modern coin in there for size. Its a wee bit smaller than a quarter but just a bit smaller.

I think you have a William and Mary coin from England. Either a farthing or a halfpenny.

Do a Google on William and Mary copper coin and you should be able to find it.

Very cool coin and OLD !!

Here is some info. 4th picture down.
