Medal: US Crusader Ornament
This might be your item, Michael. We can't figure out very much about it. They are popular on the Zazzle web site. We cannot guess what the faint ATR inscription may mean.
Apparently this is a modern piece made with two popular themes from medieval times: St. George the Dragon Slayer and Madonna and Child. They are pretty cool, if you ask me!
Zazzle sells them for $30 to $40 US dollars. If they sold on a secondary market, like eBay, they would probably go for half that much. If you wanted to sell one to a coin dealer, for re-sale to a collector, the dealer would probably offer you $5 or so.

Requester description: I think it is a medal. Weight: 21.5 grams, diameter 33mm. On the front there is a man on a horse fighting a dragon (or something that looks like a dragon). Above the man there are the 3 russian letters ATR. On the back it shows a holy figure, i think it's a madonna with a child. The figure is surrounded by some sort of leaves
