It took some doing to get the crud off this piece.
Same size as a time, but it's way thicker.
Can anyone think of a silver that would match the size thickness as this?

I think the trime was just for comparison.

Not sure @pepperj, my initial thought is not a coin. But unsure what it may be.

The only reason why I thought it might be as it xame off a site that produced another time that was worn out.
This one is the same size, but thicker.
It does resemble in size as our 5 cent pieces as it's smaller.

Cool find!

Three observations:

1. Look at edge of the the coin in the areas outlined by the yellow boxes in first 2 pics. Any sign of worn reeding?
2. In picture 1 there appears to a rim between the blue arrows.
3. If a trime is 14 mm then the silver coin you found is about 14.9 mm.

Perhaps this will help in IDing your find.

If it tests silver, completely unrecognizable, and you still need to know, put a little bit of an acid that eats silver on it. Let it sit for maybe a minute then tinsel. Keep applying until you can see some detail. The deeper indents from a press (ie low spots) are slightly harder than the shallow parts. The acid will eat the softer metal a little faster than the harder metal and you can often see detail. Again, only use if you are desperate as it is a one way trip.

I'll get a measurement in the morning.

I have a question about the same. Many times coins are found with material confusion, Is it the right way to use google lense for identity if the same exists on the web?

I have tried the Google lens on different subject matter.
Hasn't been a winner yet.
Maybe it's just my search engine.:dontknow:

I only have a standard kitchen scale. Doesn't have any real accuracy in the. 000 gram measure.
My jewelry scale died.๐Ÿ˜ช

Good old harbor freight :) PS go ahead and use the kitchen scale in grams, at least itโ€™d give us an idea
I tried on the scale.
Didn't register alone, yet when I weighed a $20 it registered 2 grams.
It went up as I added bills x4
A single bill weight is 0.934 g
