It's like the size of a Kennedy half dollar, but no date? Can't really find much on the coin with the goog, but do see a few ppl selling em on ebay. Yall have any ideas on how old, where it was minted and for what purpose, and lastly, is it worth anything?

I found several of these listed on ebay. Asking is $10-$45 and selling is $3-$33. Not sure how many were made, but they don't seem to be too hard to find.

St. Labre Indian School Token Ashland Montana token (fund raiser?) is dated 1884, but the Bison design wasn't used until 1913. It's 28mm in size, so it's smaller than a half dollar, but larger than a quarter, so it's almost exactly the same size as a US Large Cent (27.5 mm.)

Looks like this school has been somewhat active in issuing tokens. Yours isn't listed, but is somewhat similar to at least one other over on tokencatalog.com. Here is a link to help you with your research:

No idea on a date @ccb, but def looks pretty modern to me. Here is a link to the school's museum/gift shop. They might be able to get you more info.
