It looks it might be lead, US dollars are not made of lead and the design is odd. Silver doesn't normally "squish" the way it has on this coin.

That’s about the ugliest fake coin I’ve ever seen.
Welcome to Tnet.

I will offer another theory. I can't find a photo of the real ones, and my book is on loan, but they use to make coin theme bridle rosette and conchos, some of which had lead/solder backs, even though they were post Civil War. Below are reproductions of some of them. Your find may be the solder that has fallen out of one of the coin themed rosettes.

Translating app maybe? (Lead = Bullet?)

The details look way too "mushy" for it to be real and there is no reverse from what I can see.

How can you be sure it's silver. Did you do an XRF analysis of the metal composition?
Where did you find it?

I would want it to be silver for you mostafa, but I agree with Smokey, I've never seen an American coin "squish" for wear like that, which would make a person think it is not a real coin at all, but perhaps a copy? made of a softer metal, as lead has been offered?, so, the size, thickness, weight might give you answers. Regardless, welcome to the T-Net from wherever your detecting from.

What you have is very likely a crudely made β€œfantasy coin”. There is no US dollar with that reverse design, so you do not have a federally issued coin. The reverse bears a resemblance to the heraldic eagle seen on Kennedy half dollars. Your coin was probably struck by an amateur diemaker who wanted to create a made up coin design.

may have been a very early token. Or one sided & Inserted in a Belt Buckle, or Fob.

I think Seal of the President of the United States of America has been around since the mid 1800's
Maybe even 1700's in more Complicated designs.

though , if a Dollar Denomination Token, Would Suggest to me as Early 1900's after the depression at the Oldest.
That's was allot of Moola back then.

Close to a Hundred years sounds/looks about right for condition.
if Handled allot as a Good Luck Piece, & Curio.



Nice Silver Keeper for Sure :coffee2:
