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

    Without words or letters, and the plane appears to be an insert based on the two reverse prongs, I'd guess it is not a military medal.

    It's two sided, looks like one side might have had a insert, the side with the airplane is one peice, looks to have had a hinge at top, I was thinking maybe a ribbon or such, looks to be pressed brass, some hints inside show that it was plated.

    Agreed not a military medal, that is for sure.

    Wonder if it is a barnstorming exhibition momento.

    now after looking at the one on that link and the better close ups on this find, I'm of the opinion that it's a child's toy pocket watch. Probably had a paper watch face with perhaps a celluloid plastic covering for the 'crystal'. In my opinion the overall construction and the rather small loop on top (of the one in the above link) is too small to be an actual watch fob that an adult would have carried.
