    Looks like a medal made as part of a set. While they made Washington medals in the early 19th century, I do not recall any of them two headed. Clearer pictures of boths sides of the item would help.

    Your picture is too blurry. But I think I know what it is. It looks holed on the top.. correct?

    Does it look like this? It's a commemorative coin or token. $10 - $15 dollars considering the condition it's in. I found one metal detecting but also 1 sided. :watching:

    @medoraman
    It's called a Death Token. I guess there are 2 sided versions.
    I found this information on the Numista website to share with you -

    Not sure what it is. Would need to see pics. Not a US coin, but probably some kind of medal.

    Here's the one I found roll hunting last year, both sides. I kept it, but in my opinion, it's junk, probably made out of lead also... LOL

    My friend has one that's just like this one. Have you found out what it's worth?

    Well, depends on the condition but likely $1-$5 according to sold listings on Ebay. I don't see many that sell when priced above $5 though. fairly certain they are reproduced and newer versions but there are older ones I think, I have no idea how you'd tell them apart though, if it's old or if it's a new reproduction.
