I think you are right. It is too hard to ID because it is so worn but I like this coin. Thank you!

It's certainly a Macadonion shield/helmet type, but it's also riddled with bronze disiese....
    I would keep it isolated from the rest of my collection if it were mine.... I'm not sure there would be much coin left after treatment, so it might be an idea to dry it out and seal with microcrystalline wax to try and halt any further corrosion.
    Good luck!!!
