    I'd go with coin, or button. That one side looks completely toasted,
    unfortunately.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    My imagination shows a man wearing a hat; in a small boat holding a paddle.
    Yes, in my youth I failed, miserable, a Rorschach test.
    I'll go with a token.

    I see two standing lions holding what seems paddles. Above is a laurel crest with a "B".

    I can read "U. of".

    So I think thats the front of a University rowing club blazer button
