Hello there Jake , what you have there is commenly known as a hard times token.It is similar to an old US large cent as you can see.
There is a value to them and they are very collectable.Id recommend using a google search or an ebay search for hard times tokens and using the markings on the front fine tune your search.Some being rarer than others.

A decent example, why can't we see the other side and can you use the macro function on your cam?
