Portugal.  Sebastiao I, AD 1557 to 1578.

Denomination : Copper 5 redis.

Size : 29.8 x 31.0 mm. Weight : 7.73 grams.

Grade :  gF-aVF with some light scratches in the obverse field to the left of the shield (not visible on the image, but there are there).

Obverse : Crowned arms of Portugal.

Reverse : A large V (denomination mark) flanked by two quadrifoils.

This type is normally badly struck and inspite of the obverse and reverse inscriptions being only fragmentary (I have not yet attempted to work out their complete forms), this is a fairly nice specimen for the type.
