Hello and welcome. Nice looking coin. I'm sure that someone will come along with some informed info fairly soon.

Is it possible to get some clearer photographs? Specifically so I can see the area to the bottom left of the reverse shield.

I suspect that it's one of the £1 replicas found in museum shops. To the bottom left of the shield there would normally be WRL - Westair Reproductions Limited, but your example 'conveniently' has this scratched away. On the obverse the edge of the coin on the right hand side looks 'raised' which doesn't bode well, either. It also looks not to be silver but it could just be your images.

 

Please bear in mind that I'm only going from the images you've provided. It's always much easier to spot these things in hand.

 

All in all it looks like one of these that's been roughed up to try and deceive.
