Need Help With a Coin From Spain

Could someone please help me identify this coin. I won it in a lot and the desription said
Ferdinand II Half Croat. Is this correct? Thank you.

    Looks more to me like James II, reigned 1291-1327, in which case a half croat would seem impossible however. Would you have a weight in grams, or the diameter in mm for your piece? Mint is Barcelona.

    Pursuing Charles & Joanna, especially Early Series

    The diameter is 18mm , don't have a scale at the moment. It was a CNG auction and normally you can trust
    their info but the legend certainly didn't look like Ferdinand II. Thanks for the help.

    BSmith, thank you for the diameter- the coin would then be a likely match as a diner of James II, second type.

    Thank you, once I knew what to look for I was able to confirm online.
