I posted this here several years ago when I initially found it. Still have not been able to identify what it is. Thought Id give another try.
Thanks for looking any ideas about it greatly appreciated ...would like to put this one to rest about the size of a quarter round , approx a 1/4 inch thick

I put my glasses on and now I also see a Medusa head. The small notch at the top leads me to believe that it may have had an attachment of some kind. Maybe it was a piece of costume jewelry.

Shoot, it's starting to bug me now....I've exhausted most of the Greek pics trying to find even a close match. Then I thought, other cultures had snake gods...I've looked at Hindu, Arabic, Minoan,etc., then went to South American indian tribes, and finally Native American tribes....none come even close...still looking though, it's fun.....

Lol it's been bugging me since I found it.
Just weighed it .5 Oz also broke down and scratched the edge. Metal is definitely silver in color. Seems harder than lead softer than steel. Got busy with work but I will put my machine over it today and see what it thinks the metal is

Was just thinking if it's silver (I'm leaning towards it is) maybe is a prayer token of some sort ? Just an early morning thought

I agree with Medusa. Maybe a flipping coin, heads or tails? You might check and see if the park was ever used as a carnival ground.
