🔎 UNIDENTIFIED I found this 'coin' in England in 2019 (after that have not been back - Corona). But it could be a coin way back when, but what is it now?

This copper 'coin' has one blank side, and the other only has a small crown and under the crown two letters, a W and a R.

It so happens that a crowned WR is a famous icon for marking tin beer ‘puls’ in England in the past. A ‘pul’ is a temporary container for beer (until it is empty).

So this could have been a test or something like that for the punch that punched the icon (for quality and maker) onto the tin ‘pul’. The ‘pul’ is a temporary container for beer (of course until it is empty),

Well some of the English people here might know if that is true or not (I don’t), especially Cru (Crusader) who as we know visits those places quite a bit.
