Based on the "blob" in the center of the back, I would say this was a button that someone made into a pendant.
The ship is similar to the mid 20th C British Half-Penny.
While I have aimed in my postings to be irenic and conciliatory, rather than polemic, I have yet endeavored to set forth the
truth, let it favor or impugn whom it might. Any notice of misrepresentations or mistakes occurring in these prose will be most thankfully received
by the author.

That's an odd size, and considering the corrosion in the middle, and what's probably the word "GILT" on the back, I think you have a button... but that's a bit more interesting than most ship coins/tokens, at least to me.

So I kinda shake my head a little. It's not like it happens every day, or even every week, but after I posted reading the reply again it reminded me of times like that but as we both know it's easy to focus on the first post and not take on much while skimming through the rest.

Thanks for the input. It defiantly says GKL on the back, not GLIT. I must of looked at thousands of different buttons/tokens and coins to try and match it. Perhaps I will never know.
