The side with A(sia) P(ortuguesa) does look like Gomes 02.01. However, on the other side, I see traces of an older host coin at left of the shield. There is little to go on, but it may possibly be a tanga of D. João VI, see Gomes 28.01, showing part of the circle around the shield. I don't think it could be a tanga of D. José or D. Maria I.This is a puzzle. Gomes does not list (in my edition) a version of 02.01 overstruck over a tanga of D. João VI. Gomes 2.04 looks like it has a different shield. Gomes 2.05 clearly has a very different shield. Does your edition of Gomes list more variants?Numista 48865 (note puzzling remnants of host coin upside down and to the left of the shield)
