I found this yesterday at a beach along our West Coast, the last couple of days Kim and I have found quite a bit of silver coins in this area so I'm hoping this might be old also, this is the way it came out of the ocean, once I figure out what it is I will then decide on cleaning it or not, the coin is slightly smaller than a quarter but not by much. Any ideas :thinkingabout:
