It is some sort of masonic token, punched on a US cent no doubt. Bot the square and compasses with a "G" and the trowel on the other side are freemason symbols.

And to CCF!

It is most definitely a Masonic Pressed Cent. I have several different ones similar to that in my collection but I'm not quite sure what pages they are on in my collection posted in my signature. I'll see if I can find them. Here are a few examples I was able to find. (The second one is not Masonic. It is from the Shriners)

No rules against posting multiple photos, but limiting posts to photos of one coin at a time is usually preferred.

to the forum. Like Classic posted, it's best to do one coin per post. It'll help the experts here with getting the answer.

@tays, first welcome to CCF. Some counterstamps can add to a coin's value. For example, to a collector of Freemasonry, you could expect to get more than $0.01 for this piece. A search of realized prices on the 'bay would give you a better idea.

Here is an eBay listing I just ran across with a lot of pressed coins similar to yours.
