    Any info would be appreciated.

    Edit: apparently a magic square temple token, but more info needed.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    No idea, but it doesn't look "very old" to me.

    It looks like a gaming token, or a temple token of some sort.

    If someone knows what the symbols are on the reverse, they may be able to help more.

    Hindu temple token, "ramatanka". Most likely early to mid 20th century.

    I agree, it doesn't look 'very old'. That's how it was described to me, and I only saw the small pics on my phone, before posting. Couldn't/don't know how to edit thread header.

    Any idea of value? $10?

    $10 is probably about max. These are common and demand seems very limited.

    The numbers on the token are in Hindi and are:
    8 3 4
    1 5 9
    6 7 2

    All rows and columns add up to 15.
