Willem


Obv: hENRICVSREX III'.  Note the small serifs on the S (often larger). The two letters R are slightly unusual.


Rev: WIL/LEM/ONL/VND - with EM ligated, pellet on M, ON ligated, pellet on N, and ND ligated, with pellet on N. 


Sold as a continental imitation - however it is hard to be sure that this is an imitation - it looks very much like the English C/T type L.1168 which is very common.  Exact reverse text not seen in BH.
