    It seems to match a variety in Don T's book, so I am sure he will reply. Seems there are many variants, but from what I see you match one of them.

    Super find, super condition!

    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    Looks like Albert's GI 2 A

    GI 2 Continental Army, General Service, cast pewter, 1-piece with reeded border.

    A. The device, a monogram of the initials U S A. Blank; 23 mm.


    I am sure there are many other varieties than listed in Albert's book.
