I vote fake- but an old fake- perhaps a 19th century gaming counter.
It might still have some modest value along those lines, if that’s what it is.
Again, if that’s the case, it will still have some collectibility and at least modest value in its own right.
It’s fake, but not worthless like a modern fake would be, I reckon.
@lordmarcovan got it. It looks like an old counterfeit or as he said, FAKE.
I did find a real one on a google search to compare it to if you want. Great Britain Guinea KM 604 Prices & Values | NGC (ngccoin.com)
That's kind of what I was thinking, too. Thanks for the input!
That's also the only coin that I found that looks like it. Thanks for taking the time to look!
For comparison, here's a copper token meant to look like a 1789 Guinea.
Because of the metal, I don't think it was ever meant to fool anyone.
Not sure the actual date of this token, but from the corrosion it's not modern!
