I acquired this recently. I think it's BHM-1485 but I have not found a single example online in bronze. Can anyone confirm? It's about 54mm.

Thanks

How certain are you that it is bronze? It may just be the lighting, but the colouration and the state of wear to the reverse suggest a softer metal. This is known to be struck in white metal, could it be perhaps waxed?

I'm fairly certain it's bronze. It also seems to heavy for white metal. It weighs 66g. Here are some photos with a different background.

After looking further online I did see a reference to a lead example. I wonder if this could be plated lead?
