    It looks like a worn out silver coin, it does not have dimple as a knock out has. Maybe.

    A counter stamped token made from a smoothed off silver coin

    I've found several but haven't researched them as to origin or who used them


    Found in the UK? The ones I have, I believe that's where they came from

    I agree, I don't think it is a KO too thin as well as no dimple and it does not look gal plated.
