Approx 50mm and a 30 mm diameter ish.
Has some decoration to the top, plus the band.
Any thoughts welcome.
The other finds included an 1862 Penny.

Thanks for looking, :thumbsup:

Think that is a pretty good match and something i would not have even thought of, as i have never heard of one before. :clapping:
Thank you, :thumbsup:
