An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Can't tell from your picture what metal the coin is. With this kind of wear, it should look like a copper coin. However, when it was uncirculated, it looked like a silver coin. The coin was struck with a silver content of only 0.100 (10%). Most of the silver was on the surface and wore off very quickly.

This one (KM#728) was issued in 1877/1878 in copper....
The smaller version which came later (1899-1900) is in .100 silver.
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".
