Okay, I got a small lot of silver coins the other day for about half melt even at .400 silver, and in the bag there was a few small copper and aluminum coins I know nothing about and wondered if anyone could help me to identify them?

And finally this guy, which I wonder if it's a type of Notgeld, looks like steel?

First is a token (old casino token or private firma)

Second???

Third is a 2.5 piastres from Lebanon, non dated, but WWII era,KM#13, it worth 1.50$ to 17.50 according to my old Krause

Fourth is a US made (from zincolns blanks) 2 francs for Belgium. KM#133, 0.25$ to3.50$

The second one is Frederick III Kaiser und König von Preußen was German Emperor and King of Prussia, ruling for 99 days until his death in 1888. Sorry...:ninja:

 

 

And the saying on the reverse is extremely... protestant German. "Lerne leiden ohne zu klagen" means "Learn to suffer without protesting". ;) No pain, no heaven! ;) Amazing piece! I really have to get me one of those.

Is it considered a coin or a token? Also thanks very much for the information guys!

I believe it is a medal or a Token of the type that was common after the brief reign of Kaiser Friedrich III "Lerne Leiden Ohne Zu Klagen" - "Learn to Suffer Without Complaint" these were the Kaiser´s words before he died of Cancer. he had already been diagnosed with incurable cancer of the larynx when he took over the throne from his father Wilhelm I...he had a tracheotomy (which was botched) and was unable to speak for the remainder of his life (which wasnt long), and communicated only through writing.

 

I have found several different varieties...none EXACTLY like yours but I assume yours is the same general thing...probably bronze?

It appears to be copper or bronze, most likely bronze, and is small, a little smaller than a US dime and half as thick (only 1.07g). I'll assume the signature before his final words is his own, kind of like his epitaph? Anyway, thanks for the info Drusus and Banivechi.

The first piece is the 5th place award that was given out after the fierce competition that took place in the 1st international tiddly-wink competition held in Abu dhabi.
