Sorry for being so lazy.. Would you be so kind as to identify this coin(?). It is about 38mm in diameter, has milled edges and appears to be a copper alloy. Looks Eastern European to me but what do I know? Thanks in advance. Dave

I had one that my dad brought over. I had it cleaned, laquered, framed and made into a necklace for my oldest daughter.

Your photos look very 2 dimensional. Can you post more making it look 3 dimensional? Maybe with a ruler in the photo to give an idea of scale?

Looks like a Dutch Mannlicher rear sight.

The quarter inch grid and the size it shows would indicate a Mannlicher carbine sight.
