What is a bronze coin that has a king or royalty on front a ship with three masts on back and minted in 1741 the date is also printed upside down?

It was the practice for coins to be minted with obverse and reverse 180 degrees out of alignment during Queen Victoria’s time and earlier, although not all coins were minted t hat way. The practice seems to have gradually died out during the 19th century and ceased altogether in 1887. All Queen Victoria Pennies, Halfpennies and Farthings were minted with both sides aligned normally. The last Queen Victoria coins to be minted with obverse and reverse 180 degrees out of alignment were – Three-Halfpence – 1862 Twopence – 1848 Threepence – 1887 Sixpence – 1887 Shilling – 1887 Florin (Two Shillings) – 1887 Halfcrown – 1887 Crown (Five Shillings) – 1847 Half-Sovereign – 1887 Sovereign – 1887 (MORE)
