Bought a Greek coin and this shows up; help please.

This coin was added as a kind gesture. Can anyone ID this 17XX coin? I probably have the reverse upside down, lol. TIA.

    Depending on the size and weight, it is most likely a Duit or Half Duit from the Netherlands East Indies (modern-day Indonesia) issued by the United (or Dutch) East India Company. Not likely worth much in this condition, but still an interesting piece of history (and hey the price was right).

    Can you make out the last two blurry digits of the date?
