Thank you Peter, I  spotted the 'HISP' & spent ages looking at old Spanish coins, ::)

I imagine. There are no local titles on this coin. BTW, your coin was struck in Brugge/Bruges, while the coin of the sketch hails from Antwerp (hand.) The only reason I recognized it immediately is that it is quite often found by Belgian and Southern Dutch detector pilots, mostly in a state they refer to as "see-through".  :-\

I wonder what made the wear so much worse on one side. Uneven wear is common on gold and silver that was used as jewelry, but on a small copper, it is odd.
