Hi there, has anyone seen something like this?
From what I could find in my basic research the head is facing the wrong way and it's about the third of the size it should be - (or I could be looking at the wrong things! ha ha ha).
It's 10mm in diameter.

Yep, it's play money. It's hard to read but I think I can make out the name "Lauer" above the king's head. The Lauer family were token and play-money makers in Germany, the last of a long line of tokenmasters of Nuremberg. Their products are very commonly encountered throughout Europe, including Britain.

As for the portrait, he's facing the wrong way for George V, but the correct way for Edward VII.
