Well i got to the bottom of my mystery Coin/Token
after much searching and head scratching ;D

William Parker’s Dublin (County Dublin) copper Conder halfpenny token dated 1794. Obverse: Female seated on chest, leaning on large anchor and holding a cornucopia: "MAY IRELAND EVER FLOURISH". Reverse: A register stove (ornamented fire grate): "DUBLIN HALFPENNY 1794". Edge inscription: "PAYABLE AT W. PARKER’S OLD BIRMINGHAM WAREHOUSE X". William Parker was an ironmonger with a business at No. 4 Kennedy's Lane,

Sorry for the photo folks...I still haven't got the hang of uploading photos of the right size.
Apart from our s-shaped silver love token ;D , KillieDee and I thought this is was probably our best find.
Each side is roughly 1cm (1/2" across) and not sure what the base metal is. It appears to have been decorated on top with possibly copper. The back is plain. When I dug it out I first thought it was a Brownie badge 
Can anyone help with the ID?
