A worn circular copper-alloy object, 38 mm in diameter. This item is probably a coin weight and it is possible that it was an illegal issue, as it does not have a legend that is common to the legal issues. However, it is possible that any such legend has been obscured.


This item was recorded at a Central Searchers rally and was seen only very briefly.
