Any guesses? I received it with a lot of uncleaned ancients. It is 16mm at its widest.

Looks like it could be a Greek coin to me. Beyond that, I have no clue. I don't know those coins.

I know nothing about these coins, but I see what looks like a flower or maybe even the sun on the obverse.

I haven't seen anything similar on a Greek coin--but my knowledge is limited too.
I'll keep my eyes open for anything like it.

Thanks for your replies! I figured it was a long shot. Maybe someday I will figure out where it came from. I kinda like the mystery of this hobby. Maybe this coin was produced by a long forgotten kingdom that is yet to be found!:)
