Needing Assistance

| user_39492

Hi all, I've posted this coin with a group of others from my grandfather's collection he left to me and I've found and researched many of them, but this particular coin I just can't seem to find any information about. If there's anyone who can help me to pinpoint the region of this coin and the background it would be very appreciated. Thanks again to all and thank to the Armed Forces for your service.

My friend I have looked at about a 1000 coins with the description of yours. I checked every American coin and token every English coin and token its the largest search I have done. With no luck. I suggest you send it in to a tpg and find out for sure what it is. I watch every American freedom medal token and coin. Again with no luck. Send it in and keep us updated!!

I believe that it’s a 100 year anniversary of American freedom and they made so little of them so that they could sell it and make money. It’s the same head stile that the Morton cent has. You might have a valuable pin on your hands, or may not even be worth any thing sense there might be only one and no one even knows it existed.one last thing, check the rim for anything that may identify it. Yours truly BlackArrowCoin

I collect English Tokens from the 1700's. I just took another look at your coin. Remember I said no American coin split the date like that but English tokens made of copper do. That's why I believe its English!No America Medals split the date either!

Finally was able to get it to someone to test it and found out it was copper (been working a lot) and to keep looking into it because he couldn't find it anywhere. Thanks again for everyone's help.

It could be some kind of privately issued token for a store or something thats just missing the reverse.

I have changed my mind on this coin. I know agree with the idea it is some kind of commemorative coin or token. A souvenir. We have some clever people here and on the Facebook site. Send us more info please.

All I can do is go and get it tested to see what type of metal it is because I have no idea where it came from,I asked my aunt and all she could tell me is he was a collector of almost anything in every country he traveled.

The design is consistent with the U.S. Braided Hair half and large cents struck between 1839 and 1857, however the date was not divided as Mike has mentioned. I'm also curious as to a size, which were were 23 and 27mm respectively. This would leave me to believe it to be some sort of commemoration button struck for the 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. None the less, a fascinating piece you have there.

What is the size, compare it to a U.S. coin for reference.

It's an interesting coin! Good luck with the research. Someone is bound to know what it is. ; )

I don't know why but it feels British to me. Good luck.

I posted your picture on the ANA Members Only FB page. Hopefully someone there can help identify it. I will let you know if it is identified.

Do you know what kind of metal its made of?. I checked American Coins that didn't have the date split like that. I hope someone comes up with the answer for you.

I used a magnet to test, but it doesn't stick.
