...had a good go at this and struck out. It would help if the legend could be read? It does look like a coin that may have been made into a button or at least a button which has borrowed the design of a coin?

Also, is the image back-to-front?

Was good to get out on Dumbarton foreshore -- even better when bumped into Kaspars at the car park. Great company, weather hot hot hot !!! and plenty finds all round. I will add a pic of mine tomorrow when I get home ( night out in Glasgow ).
Back is fine -- alcohol numbing the pain lol

Cheers mate  ;D

...I know what you are thinking (i.e. seal) and I did look at the Lithuanian coat of arms, but when I reversed the image I couldn't read the legend either and I think there is an "S" reversed? There are Dutch and French coins similar, but no exact match. It is old though as the depiction of the horse is in the old style with both front and back legs extended, well worth a picture to TT!!
