That is the monogram of King Oscar I of Sweden, who ruled from 1844 to 1859. Ratt och Sanning means Right and Truth.
These coins are really hard to find in good condition. The catalog values look low compared to actual recent sales, so the numbers on this page are somewhat higher than the Standard Catalog of World Coins. Here they are:
1/2 ORE DATED 1857 OR 1858
worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $50
fully uncirculated: $200
These values apply, at least approximately, to all dates except the 1856. If you have a coin dated 1856, you hit the jackpot:
1/2 ORE DATED 1856
worn: $25 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $150
well preserved: $300
Use our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.

Requester description: 1857 1/2 ore, 1857, Rattoch Sanning (Words seperated by small star) ,1 large figure, possibly a crown of some sort? With one samll crown on top of it, 1 small crown to the right, and one to the left of the large figure, and one on the bottom of the figure. ALSO there is a faint faint scratching on the front of the coin that looks like a 5 and 7, possibly referring to the date?
