I use an app on my phone called google lens, just take a snapshot on my phone of it and it brings up associated items. Looks like there are many similar varieties of this coin.

Now that I know what it is,
Will it grade or is it even worth sending
It in? Anyone know how they made
These coins back then… with a hammer/
Chisel….when was the first coin
Press invented/used?

Thanks
Hammered coinage was the norm until the 17th century. Mechanical presses started to be introduced in the 16th century, but weren't as efficient, which was a big deal when coiners were paid by their output.
