    It appears to be an old British/French copper? most likely a large cent or half cent?all I can say.

    Maybe try a paper and pencil rubbing? Sometimes it can draw more out of the coin than the camera allows, especially if it is very close to flat. I had a number of coins that were identified with this method.

    I don't think so. If I had to guess, it's probably from one of the German States, Prussia, maybe?

    Good point, probably more effective than a Numista search at this point.

    No it isn't. The OP's coin has periods both before and after the BO. @derkerlegand 's post has BOH, then a period. But I think he's on the right track.

    I'm thinking BO might stand for Bohemia?

    One thing I think is for sure: It looks like it's from the Austro-Hungarian empire. They also ruled over Bohemia.

    Austria. Joseph II or Franz II. Probably a 1 Kreuzer. Ruler legend is on the left, but too worn to tell from the pics. The rev would also provide useful info but once again, too worn

    Try numismatics to see if you can match it to any late 1700s-early 1800s 1 or 3kreuzer pieces
