Hi all, this is my first post on here and basically I would like help identifying this coin or token which I found recently. I haven't found anything quite like it before and cannot find any thing very similar online. The closest similar style of coin in brass was a spanish token but that was only vaguely similar.

This coin appears to have 2 shields besides one another possibly crowned on the front with blurry writing? around it.

The other side has a date, I think 1608 but maybe 1600 and above that some very clear leaves on a vine.

Any ideas or even similar items I could research would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time, Mike
