I have found this coin (what I assume to be a coin) while metal detecting. Its really unusual and I have no information on it. Its clearly very worn, I have no idea of age, what it might be or if it is indeed a coin. Is there anyone who may be able to shed light on this or knows where I may find out about it? TIA

After some further attempts to gently clean the coin up, it came up clear enough to make out some other features. The reverse side showed up 10 Penniä  and 1867 - upon researching this its an 1867 finnish coin :)

I have found some really bizarre coins out there, including, a 5 centimes from 1854 with Napoleon 3rd on it and coin from Nova Scotia, to name a few...as for where I found it, near my home in Scotland, South Lanarkshire, its a large wooded area :)

so jealous as a fellow metal detector I am in a non populated rural area with few people. I still find modern gems with my Ace250 but usually only pre 1964 us silver. I only swung for about 6 hours in 2020. What a aweful year. I was actually chased out of a park because covid had closed down the park///// yep. what do you swing with? I am thinking about upgrading but need to find a worthy upgrade for the money. Peace.
