I found this medal/token in a bulk foreign coin bag. Pretty sure it's not a coin but can't pin it down. Found an image on the web in a foreign language so not much help. Otherwise Google and Coinoscope didn't provide the answers so am resorting to the good old folks at CC.

Diam. 22.0mm
Weight 4.5g

Thanks

@dg, that is a Turkish ferry token. Here is the numista link:

I used IZMIR KORFEZ TOKEN as the keywords in my search.

izmir korfez is Gulf of Smyrna

hatti isleimesi means something like 'line operation'.

Perhaps something to do with a railway line in the area?

Thanks Guys and Gals.

@John1 - Think of yourselves as the elite forces that people turn to to get a job done when other methods fail!

Pretty sure I tried that using token as well as medal. Mind you, based in Australia I'll get different results to what you see from the USA.
