I have this old coin; no idea about it really...

Can anyone shed some light? If it's something, maybe how much it's worth?

Thanks Smiley

All I can say is it looks like a nice condition Medieval bronze. It isn't a lot of info, but is a starting point.

With the two crowned pillar, I think it is suppose to be Spanish.  Of course it is a fake.  I have seen too many similar fakes like this.

The 741 between the pillars is a date and stands for 1741.

Post photos of it on the identification board.
Just because this one is fake doesn't mean yours is. There's no way to tell without seeing it.
