Hi all,

I got a kind of coin from my grandfather and I don't know where and when it is made and I'm not sure it is a coin or not. Could somebody help me to identify the item. How can I attached the photos of item? Thanks.

@Jade23,
You need to put the photo on a photo hosting site such as photobucket, then link to it using the Img tags.

Here is the closest I could get in the short space of spare time I have today....but it turned out to be a livery button, apparently.

Try locating Stanley Gibbons in London. They specialise in stamps and coins and are world famous. They will maybe ask you to send a pic to them via email.

@Lordyaswas,
Light bulb moment!


That "coin" of yours....I was wondering what happened to the monarch's head on the reverse.
I'm now pretty certain that the loop shape is in fact the eye of the button.

I reckon you have an old button there. Probably military.

Obvious now, when my brain is thinking button instead of coin.

@Lordyaswas,
I thinks these cons are very rare to find it, they are very old.

Thanks Lordyawas to show us thew nice way regarding the coins.

@shoeab,
It turned out to be a button, worth about £5 on a good day.
