I have the exact same medallion that i found in my yard as a child in 1970. I too am trying to find out what it is. it is actually made of white medal, with a bronze Finnish on it, not aluminum.

Its a commemorative medallion of George Washingtons funeral. Worth about $5000.

It is said to be a funeral token, I've seen it minted in a variety of metals. It does not have a Baker number from what I can see, I think the design is interesting yet crude (but probably not from a carnival) the value is closer to $10-$30.

I too have one I got at a coin box of misc items back in the early 1970s, I too would like to know if it's worth anything
Small type U.S. coinage, die varieties, doubled dies, repunched mintmarks, and some limited error knowledge. I specialize in Lincoln cents, and know Jefferson Nickels, Roosevelt dimes, and Washington quarters reasonably well. I do not know anything about foreign coins, tokens, medals. Please DO NOT submit questions about coins other than U.S. coins - I will not be able to help with any other subject.
30 years working with Lincoln cents. I have written articles for various trade journals and periodicals, authored two books on the subject, and authored/developed www.coppercoins.com
