I agree. Too mushy to pin down any sort of ID with any certainty. Learned a lot researching it though. not silver OR gold. Interesting to me anyway.
Mushy detail and porous appearance are characteristics of cast coins, as is a seem running around the edge if it has not been filed off.
The obverse legend - in Gothic script - should read something like FERNANDVS: hET: ELISABET.EI: and, from what I can see, that looks possible on your coin. However, the reverse should read something like REX: ET: REGINA: CAST: LEGIO (= Leon): ARGO: SI (cily), which, from what I can see, seems different on your coin. The lettering looks a little odd, although I am not an expert on the varieties of Gothic script.
What is the diameter and what is the weight ? And, most important, does it look like silver or something else ?
