    After seeing those last pics I too would leave it, all those bubbles lead me to think this was done by a non professional, if im not mistaking it just takes a little heat with carbon dioxide to get the bubbles to surface when its still curing...sure is neat!!

    Here are a few more photographs.
    It looks more like a homemade prosthetic eye now that you cleaned it. Is it about eyeball sized? Either that or it's a paperweight with an old coin in it? Strange cool find.

    Could be, but I wonder if it is a home made replacement for one as Gene Mean suggested? I doubt a commercial one would use a coin.

    Seems like you should be able to see enough to figure out what coin it is.....

    Take it to your eye doctor if you have one. Might know something about what people did in old hard times.
    Updated-
    Well, if you Google search "coin paperweight" the word "resin" pops up along with tons of pics of coins in resin. So I think it's probably a paperweight now. Not as creepy as an eye but cool.

    Could well be. The interesting thing about this is, is that it is only 1 inch in diameter and 7/16 of an inch tall. I should have given those dimensions earlier, but thought the scale could be determined by the size of the encased dime. My bad on the oversight!
