Ok, it says 1792 on the obverse, and on the reverse i believe it to be HMC. I tried to do research on this bugger, but could not find anything at all! It appears there are letters on the edge that are unreadable. But i believe i picked out an - R-I-A-L, not too sure, but thats what it loks like to me. Can anyone out there identify this coin???

It is a conder(or, wrongly, condor) token, named for James Conder who first catalogued them, in the UK they are known as "18th Century Provincial Tokens"
