It looks like a generic small medallion of Napoleon and "God protect France".

@arby, I can find a discussion over on numista of a similar piece:

https://fr.numista.com/forum/topic80057.html


Looks like it might be a mid-19th Century token having to do with Napoleon I's death, transportation of crematory remains, or final burial.



Also, here is a comptoir des monaies link with the attachment tang still intact. You can see clearly on yours where this has been removed and the metal smoothed down.
