Token: Great Britain 'Queen of' Jeton with Byzantine Eagle
These are old counting jetons (tokens) usually used for game pieces during the mid 1800s. The double-headed eagle on the back is the Byzantine coat of arms that signifies the union of church and state, which is precisely what Thomas Jefferson and America's founders wanted to get away from!
Tokens like this that are still around are pretty well beat up. If you can find one in decent shape, a token collector will want to buy it. Approximately:
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $5
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $80
