No one dares to make a statement on this one?

Sorry Maudry, but the lack of responses probably does indicat that this is a very difficult one  :-\. The worn condition does not help. I am afraid i can't state anything more helpfull.

Very possibly its a contemporary fake that originally had a silver coating.  Very possibly its been in a river for the last 2000 years and lost about 30% of its substance.  Certainly it is impossible to say what type it once purported to be because most of the marks are completely worn off

So the answer to your question is - no   :(

Hi,
Thank your for your replies.
Even if it does not help to identify the coin, I like a lot the idea about a contemporary fake.  :)
