Wax  smeared  on Finds can be a handy tool for Identification  of an areas potential
  No Way would I have spotted Geo 11 on this ,
Without wax
couple of H/penny's with Harps  in the finds , One could be old Gun Money (recognisable by blackish Metal )
chemicals over the Years have killed coins , but it don't Damage Silver or Gold , 🙌

Looks good  :). Could that be a printing block or a token of some sort?  Although it does look like another one would stack on top, locking in place with the grooves... who knows ;D

One last guess, .......a gaming piece... ???

looks like an early communion token probably 17th/18th century, i have some with just the ministers initials on them, look similar to this.
