    Token or tag?

    Not sure what this is. Used the penny for a size reference. Very thin and only has decorations on one side. Click image for larger version.

    It looks like a token made with similar design to US coins. What is interesting to me is the little clip on the coin. Could this be how these holed coins were attached to clothing instead of thread? Can you take a pic of the back of the little clip? I'd guess one prong will be broken off. Gary

    I think it was once part of a costume jewelry bracelet or necklace.

    Tony is correct. It's from a sash belt type garment that was covered in those 'coins'. They are also known as a coin scarf.

    I have to 'like' this post simply for the use of the word "bangle"!
    How often does one get to use a word like that?

    Nice ID.
