Cannot identify positively - compare it to a modern dime, quarter and half. (For the size)
It is commonly called a Barber coin named for the director of the mint.
Made between 1892 and 1915/1916.
These coins circulated heavily during the second world war and are often found in this condition.

@mazzie, first welcome to CCF. Second, this seems to be a silver Barber coin, but as @mtv mentions, these were made in dime, quarter, and half dollar denominations. Can you please post a pic of the reverse side of the coin too? Thx.

Oh of course, Spence, the reverse would confirm the denomination!

Looks like it might say "IN GOD WE TRUST", if so it's a quarter or a half.

It has STARS on the obv so it is either a quarter or half dollar. From the way the ribbons look I think it is a quarter.
