Germany Trier I, II, III, and IIII Pfenning 1723 to 1764
Without a date, Z, it is difficult to be certain about your coin. The best guess I can make is a four pfenning piece from the old German State of Trier. The coin in the picture comes from Munzenhandlung Strueken in Bochum, Germany, and CoinQuest thanks them for the use of their coin image.
Since you indicate heavy wear and repulsive eye appeal, you coin is worth about zero. If your coin look like Stueken's, then the value would go up to $10 to $20 US dollars. In well preserved condition, the value triples.
Trier minted coins like this in one, two, three, and four pfenning denominations. All carry similar values. The three pfenning is more rare, so it is worth a little more:
1, 2, 3, 4 PFENNIG
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $50
well preserved: $150
, Genre: Central Europe North South

Requester description: The coin appears to be a pfennig. On the front are two letters which are hard to tell due to their intricacy. The letters appear 'leafy' could be 'GT' or 'OT'.On top of the letters is a crown. On the back is the denomination IIII, below is the word 'pfenninge'.On each side of the denomination are tiny five sided oak leaves. The coin appears to be made of copper with a bit of rust on it. Around the out side edge whats left of a border can be seen and on the back the border looks like it contains small notch marks in it.
