Questionable european coins

so just about 3 weeks ago, at my church, a nice guy who always gives whole bags of random coins to me gave me a few coins, and among them were these 2 coins, that seem to be a Spanish/Portuguese copper coin, and a English Farthing,  but they are too odd and worn for me to correctly identify them.

Sorry, I have no idea.

The larger coin appears so worn it almost resembles a modern replica piece of some sort. (I could be wrong of course) But you now have something to occupy your time so it's time to drag out the World Coin catalogs!

You might try an app called coinoscipe to identify them

I have seen the shield on the fourth picture you posted and it is escaping me at this time.  I think it is either a Spanish or Italian coin from the mid to late 1800s.  the four symbols at the top left of the photos is tickling my brain, I just can't pull the memory.  You keep looking and I will do some research myself.  It is almost midnight sat night where I'm at, so it will be sun before I even start looking.  Hang in there, I also know someone else to ask.  This guy is better knowledgeable than I am,  Keep looking and I will as well.  We will not leave you hanging.  Later, Stumpy

Coinoscope looks interesting.  I want to get the app and try it. Reviews for coinoscope are mixed though. I have a few coins, i would like to narrow down to identify.  Should take them to coin club and let the members identify them. Just regular old foreign coins, probably Japan. Its nice to know exactly what you have. Always dreaming of maybe they are worth more rhan a dollar  !! Should go through the foreign coin junk bins also. Can probably find examples that way !

Look at the fourth coin for me again, I know the animal on the shield are Lions, are those symbols that are hard to see Castles?  Is there any way to get a clearer photo of this particular coin, both sides and add them to your post?  I am looking, found some possibilities, but no joy yet.  The lack of a clear image is kicking my old buttocks.  Still looking though.
