QUERY: UNIDENTIFIED COIN FROM THE EPIC HISTORY OF EVERYDAY THINGS

Ed Krivoniak writes:

Unknown Coin I watched a program called The Epic History of Everyday Things a few weeks ago and one of the segments was about money. They showed some hoard coins, a Greek coin, and a Ptolemaic coin to show early examples of money.

They also showed a coin which I could not identify. I took a picture of it and have shown it to everyone I know in Pittsburgh with no results as of yet. It appears to be 19th century but since only one side is shown and there is no inscription, no one has been able to identify it. The best supposition is that it is some kind of token. I hope that perhaps E-Sylum readers can identify it.

Can anyone help? -Editor
