Looks like a gothic florin to me. Should be a crowned Queen Victoria on the rear vs the normal plain bust, and the date is in roman numerals around the bust (hence why you cannot find a numbered date). They are reasonably rare to find detecting, though yours looks like it has seen better day with heavy wear.

Hi

The condition is what in the collectors world is called poor condition. It would be worth only a few dollars. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
