I found this broken coin and could see it’s copper based with a silver plate. I’m thinking a half crown forgery, but which monarch - Charles II?
Any help appreciated.

It does have the half crown look about the reverse side of it....
Love seeing things like this as it shows skullduggery has been with us for centuries where money is concerned :ugeek:
