The photos are as best I can get with an iPhone. It's about the size of a penny (British). Apologies for the quality, but I'm no expert in photography or one in numismatics (new word for me also).

Woula appreciate any comments on what it is.

I posted my first post a few days ago on something I own and since I mentioned it (in the pub) this guy showed me this which is far older I think, and probably more interesting.

( I'm no pro, it's just my humble opinion )
Searched 6.5 +/- Million Cents Since 1971

Hard to say without better pictures or some detail to go on, or any idea where it was found. Presumably bronze, possibly Roman. But at 10 you're getting into the realms of being able to buy decent, identifiable coins.

Probably Macedon, IMO. Maybe an issue of Antigonos II Gonatas. Likely Athena right obverse (bottom pic needs to be rotated 90 degrees clockwise), Pan erecting trophy right for the reverse.
